Spring is very busy time in the band and school world. Here are some updates to keep you in the know.
There is a band booster meeting today, Tuesday, March 12 at 6pm at DCHS. We will be discussing the upcoming concerts and banquets and need all the help we can get to help.
The DMS Spring Concert is quickly approaching. It is on March 26 at 7pm in the DCHS Auditorium. Students report in their seats by 6:30. Students should be dropped off at least 15 minutes before to get set up. All students should wear all black and be in dress code. Please see the handbook for more details. Handbooks are linked to the website.
The DMS Dollywood trip letter was sent last week. It is also uploaded to charms and at the bottom of this post. This is always such a fun trip and we look forward to having fun with the students.
Please help encourage students to practice. Even 5 minutes a day can make all to difference in how quickly the grow as a musician. We highly encourage using musicracer.com and musictheory.net for good none playing practice. Both are free and great at reinforcing what students have learned in class. A wonderful addition is also smartmusic. This one is not free, but is very inexpensive with a yearly fee. It offers a tuner, metronome, over 1000 songs, a testing system that helps the student know what they need the most help on. Last in the list, but by far not the least, is private lessons. These are 30-60 minute private sessions between your student and an instructor. This can make a huge impact on a student.
Be sure to visit the calendar to keep up to date. Have a wonderful week!
