5th Grade Band

This year our 5th grade band will all be in one class.  Ideally we like to have them split up but that didn't work with the schedule this year.  We will spend the first semester learning how to read music, music theory, and how to play recorder.  We will also test your child on what instrument would be best for them.  More information about this will be sent home when we get ready to start.  The 2nd semester will be spent teaching them how to play an instrument.  We will work towards our performance at the Spring concert. If you have any questions please contact us. bobby.halamicek@masonisd.net or kevin.rooney@masonisd.net or call 325-347-1122 ext 227.
