CLMS Band Newsletter

Dear CLMS Family,

We have had an exciting year so far in the CLMS Band program. I would like to congratulate our jazz band on scoring a “Superior” rating at this year’s Jazz Music Assessment.

I would also like to congratulate our 10 solo and ensemble participants. These CLMS representatives won 6 Superior medals and 2 Excellent medals.

Upcoming Events

On February 26th the Jazz Band has been invited to perform for the SDLC School Board. We will need a trailer tow to help move the music stands.

Our Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Bands will perform at Golden Gate High School and on April 4th and 5th respectively for the 2019 middle school Concert Band MPA. We will need a trailer tow on each day

Our spring concert will be on Monday, May 6 at 7:00 PM at the CLHS Auditorium.

Private Lessons and Tutoring

One of the best ways for a student to improve is by taking private music lessons. Unlike other subjects, you don’t need a music tutor because you are struggling in band. Actually, music lessons are for any student who wants to take their musical skills to the next level.

I would be happy to help connect you and your student with either a professional musician for formal lessons or a student for peer-tutoring. Any students hoping to win auditions (High School band placement, CLMS Wind Ensemble, CLMS Jazz Band, All-County, All-State, etc.) will have a much better chance of winning with private music lessons.
