Sectionals

Sectionals are being offered as part of this program to allow students additional instruction. Extra sessions provide music instructors the opportunity to work with students all playing the same instrument and to focus on their needs. Occasionally, we will also have special practices to help students get “concert-ready.”  Students are strongly encouraged to attend these group sectionals and special practices that are included with the program at no additional cost.

We understand that your children have after-school activities, but if it is possible to re-arrange schedules to attend the sectionals, it will better prepare students for their upcoming concert on December 8.

As you can see, the schedule is very tight, so please plan to arrive 5-10 minutes prior to your child’s group and please be on time for pick-up afterwards so that our instructors can maximize the instruction time.

All students should bring their instrument, music folder, a pencil and music stand if you have one.
