Updates & Changes
With all the things that could happen here we are today struggling with the onset of COVID-19 and its ability to stop the world as we know it. We are still uncertain the the near future holds and to what degree it affects what we will be doing as far as school goes but what we are doing is moving forward one step at a time. I have set up the BAND app and I now believe I have almost everyone. Please check band everyday for something from me to keep us informed and up to date. I am working on a couple of things I hope you will all enjoy to help us to keep playing and learning music. You are my extended family and I care about each of you. Let me know if I can be of help to any of you at any time. Parents you can contact me anytime, if I can help you in any way.
This To Shall Pass and we have bright and wonderful days ahead.
Spring semester is under way, let's take a look at what we can accomplish and continue as we endeavor to come through Coronavirus 2020.
