The Music Room

Welcome--
Happy fall! The music room has started off with a bang as our students enjoy playing on the brand new instruments and equipment. We thank the Jubilation Foundation for their generous grant and look forward to showcasing our new acquisitions at the winter concert.

Special Events:
10/24 - 10/26     Honor Band in Haines
12/13                 Winter Band Concert

Practice:
Perfecting a skill takes time, dedication, and plenty of practice. Students are expected to practice daily in the following increments to progress as a musician:

Beginners (4th & 5th grade) - 10 minutes a day
Intermediate students - 20-30 minutes a day
Advanced students - 30-60 minutes a day

While daily practice may not be feasible for various reasons, encouraging each musician to shift their suggested practice time around throughout the week and weekend will ensure their hard work during class becomes a permanent part of their musical development.

Lessons:
Mrs. Lucey and Mr. Long, the band director from Craig, have teamed up for a lesson share between the two districts. Free private or small section music lessons for enrolled students are available before and after school from either teacher Monday-Friday. Currently, the after school schedule is as follows:

Monday: Percussion
Tuesday: Clarinet
Wednesday: French Horn & Flute
Thursday: Woodwinds

Before school times are available to all music students! Contact Mrs. Lucey (jill.lucey@klawockschool.com) for more information or to schedule a lesson.
