You are highly encouraged to use a reputable music vendor with a repair facility. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT AN INSTRUMENT OR ANY SUPPLIES, PLEASE CONTACT MS. PETERSEN.

Music education is more important to our children now more than ever! In addition to the cognitive development that occurs when learning to play an instrument, music provides a social and emotional outlet for the students. I am committed to giving your children the best instrumental music education possible. The "WHAT" has not changed, just the "HOW." 

 

ALL BAND STUDENTS (BAND SUPPLY LIST) - You should have your instrument, accessories, and band book no later than August 30. (RISING 6TH - I HIGHLY ENCOURAGE YOU TO RENT THE INSTRUMENT AND ALSO GET THE INSTRUMENT INSURANCE.) Do not worry about purchasing the theory book or concert shirt at this time.

 

RISING 6th BAND STUDENTS - I am going to provide extra Zoom sessions (dates TBA - no in-person meetings as originally scheduled) for small groups and individuals to help you start playing your instrument successfully! The best of the Hough High School Band students will also be helping us in the Zoom sessions. If your child did not attend the Instrument Tryouts in February or at an individual appointment, please contact Ms. Petersen ASAP at R.PETERSEN@CMS.K12.NC.US.

 

RISING 7th & 8th GRADE BAND STUDENTS:

Performing Band and Jazz Band will be offered virtually beginning after Labor Day.

 

ALL 8th BEGINNING GUITAR STUDENTS (GUITAR SUPPLY LIST) - You should have your instrument, accessories, and guitar book no later than August 30. (List of Music Vendors)

I realize one of the most wonderful things about being in band or guitar class is to create music WITH others. While we will be doing this differently for awhile, please know that the wait to safely make music together WILL BE WORTH IT! I look forward to making music with my new and current students!
