First of all, NICE JOB yesterday to all of the Symphonic Band members. I could hear you improving as the rehearsal with TPHS progressed! I'm proud of all your hard work with this challenging piece! Keep up the great work!
Second, I would like to thank all of the parents who attended our Fundraising Meeting on Thursday and also those parents who submitted ideas to me via email. We are working to integrate many of your ideas in the coming months.
Finally, I've been doing some digging and found some articles that you may be interested in reading. Just click the title...

Since I'm always looking for ways to make our Music Department and our students better, I thought I would share a link to an article I found.

I also found an interesting article on the La Quinta High School Band website about what it means to be a music major in college. I don't know if any of you are considering pursuing a music major when you go to college, but if so, this article is DEFINITELY worth reading.
