Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year at Southern Guilford Middle School! This will be a very different year for all of us.
We will be starting out this year in band getting our basic music theory established. This will be easy for some of you and a little more challenging for others. That is fine. Our purpose is to get to the point where it is easy for everyone. Be patient, don't get stressed and we will all get there!
If you have an instrument at home, please practice! You can work out of your book or on any concert music you may have. It is important that you practice! If you need music, let me know and I will make sure you get it!
For beginning students, if you have instruments that is great! Contact me and I will help you get started with them. If you don't have an instrument, that is fine too. We can focus on our assignments and learn the instrument when you get it.
I look forward to seeing you all online and even more when we can be back in the band room! Remember, don't stress over the assignments. I will be there to help you all along the way!
Take care of yourselves and be safe!
