Band Super Lesson - Aug 27th

Are you signed up to take BAND in middle school?

 

Have no fear, the Super Lesson is here!

 

On Tuesday, August 27 the Waukesha Middle School Bands are hosting a Super Lesson to help all of our beginning band students get off to a successful start.*

 

The event will begin with a brief overview of the band program for parents and students. Following the introductions, we will break up into smaller groups with other students that play the same or similar instruments. Parents are encouraged to sit in on the lessons as well!

 

During the regular school day, all of the instruments are in the same band class, so this is the best opportunity for students to receive instruction specialized for their instruments. In previous years, the students that received this specialized instruction have always appreciated learning these basics ahead of time.

 

TOPICS COVERED

  • How do I assemble my instrument without damaging it?
  • How do I hold my instrument correctly?
  • How do I make a sound on my instrument?
  • How do I read music for the first notes on my instrument?
  • How do I take care of my instrument to avoid expensive repairs?
  • How do I clean and pack up my instrument after playing it?
