Who's excited??? I sure am! It was awesome seeing so many Dickerson musicians at Upbeat! String Camp last week. For those of you who were still at the beach, time to get those instruments out and remember how to play!
Returning musicians: Please, please, please address any and all instrument concerns NOW before we return to school. The string shops get slammed as the beginners start signing up. Please get to a shop now if you need a size change, strings replaced, bow repair or replaced, or any supplies like that mandatory shoulder rest or rosin. If you need supplies, also check: www.sharmusic.com
