Instrument Step-up Night – Monday, December 10 – By Appointment 4:00-7:00PM

Instrument Stepup – Letter to Parents

Starting Wednesday, November 28th – For two weeks SHS band students will have the opportunity to play on some advanced instruments  and take them home which are provided to us by Beacock’s Music.  I am excited about this because it will give your student a chance to see, hear, and feel what it is like to play on something other than a beginning instrument. Our students work hard to make good music and to bring a sense of pride and accomplishment to themselves and our band program. At this point in the year, many families are considering making the change from renting an instrument to owning their own, or considering the possibility of purchasing an upgraded instrument. If you and your student are interested in taking advantage of this opportunity, please read the attached letter. Appointments to meet with Beacock’s Music will be scheduled for Tuesday, December 10th from 4-7pm.

Interested in checking out a step-up instrument overnight? Submit the form & talk to Mr. Stai if you are interested. Right now we have open-holed Yamaha Flutes, Buffet & Selmer Clarinets, Yamaha Alto Saxes, Allegro & Bach Trumpets, Allegro & Bach Trombones.
