This term our Year 5 students have all come together in Week 3 and 6 to rehearse as a full band. This is an excellent opportunity for collaborative learning as they begin to listen and create music as a large group. Our tutors are on hand to assist and our goal is to produce an end of year concert for our Year 5 families that we can all be proud of.
Week 7 and 8 see the students back in their instrument groups with their tutors before coming together again for band in Week 9.
These instrumental lessons continue to be every Tuesday between 8.50am – 9.50am for the rest of the year, and students MUST bring their instrument, music book and practice journal every week. Students receive a 30 minute music theory lesson and a 30 minute instrumental instruction with their tutor. Band is a full hour rehearsal.
To make the most of this opportunity, we encourage students to do regular practise on their instrument. We understand that students and families have many commitments out of school hours, however, if possible we would like them to find 50 minutes over the course of the week (in small or larger blocks to suit the family timetable). With practice comes confidence and enthusiasm.
We thank you for your assistance in making music happen each week for your child. If you have any questions at all regarding any aspect of the program, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
