Thanks to all our Select Band members who made it out to our first performance this year. I know it was a bit of a long day, but everyone did a great job and seemed to enjoy themselves. Our school had the most student's participate of the four middle schools - great job making Landis shine!!

Our next performances will be the Turkey Bowl and Vineland Christmas Parade, both in late November.

Remind App - text/e-mail notifications for Select Band

If you have not already done so, please consider signing up for the Remind group. It only takes a minute!!

New this year, I will be using the app "Remind" as a way of being able to communicate quickly with students and parents. It uses text messaging or e-mail and does not provide any contact information (mine or yours). This means that everyone's phone number or e-mail address stays private. I will be using this to remind student's (and parents) of upcoming rehearsals, events, etc. It also will allow me to provide last minute updates in the event of changes (a few of our performances are outside and subject to weather). It is just a way to provide information as it only works one-way (you can't reply to any messages). 

I will still continue to update the website regularly and send out e-mails occasionally through the year. If you are interested in joining, please click the link below or see me for a handout.

Please know if you decide to change your mind, it is very easy to remove you from the list.

Music lesson reminders

posted Sep 27, 2012, 11:36 AM by Eric Sikorski   [ updated Jan 2, 2013, 8:48 AM ]

 For ALL students taking music lessons - please remember to bring the following items to EVERY lesson.
  • Instrument (except percussionists)
    • Clarinets and saxes - always have two reeds in good condition
    • Brass instruments - valves/slides should be oiled at home
  • Band folder - with all handouts/papers/etc.
  • Music Lesson Book (if you received one)
  • Practice Assignment Log
  • PENCIL (pens are not allowed in music) - I highly recommend putting two pencils in your instrument case.
If you can't attend your lesson - be sure to call Mr. Sikorski in the beginning of the period so he can schedule a make-up lesson if possible. 
 
Practicing
- Students should be practicing at least five (5) days every week at home.
  • First year students should spend about 15 minutes practicing each day.
  • Select band students should spend about 20-25 minutes each day.

- Use your practice assignment log to make sure you are practicing the right material each week.

THE MORE YOU PLAY YOUR INSTRUMENT - THE BETTER YOU WILL GET!!!
