Universal, 7th grade, Listening for all classes

by Mrs. Laux on March 17, 2017

Universal: One week away! T-shirts will be distributed today or Monday. DO NOT wear them prior to next weekend. This is solely for washing and packing purposes only. Please refer to the yellow packing list in the orchestra room to prepare. *Luggage drop is next Thursday, 4:30-6:30pm. Your luggage, instrument, and a case of water to the covered play area, enter through music doors. NEW: you will need to pack a lunch for our departure day, next Friday. No school lunch that day.

Chamber:  Today and Monday, March 20 only. Our next rehearsal will be March 31st.

Listening is up for all classes!  Please check our the listening section for your spring concert tunes.

7th Grade Orchestras:  Schedules are set and no changes can be made at this time. This means no more emails to me or admin regarding your orchestra class. We have nine weeks left in the school year, classes were slightly reshuffled to provide a different experience for everyone. I would never challenge my child’s classroom teacher as she works with them every single day, understands how they learn, and what they bring to the classroom. I trust she knows what is best for my child and will give them the best learning experience. We have taught almost every single one of you for two years now and have seen you grow. We could easily go to an audition-based orchestra placement if that would make class placement easier. Trust that your orchestra directors have your best interest in mind and want to provide the learning environment that best meets the needs of every student. We are dedicated to your education (updating our orchestra website at 5:15 in the morning). So please, make music. Enjoy the experience. That’s why you joined.
