Here are a few updates as to what’s going on with Skyridge Bands:
Our Winter Concert is December 11th at 7 p.m. at CHS. More information will be sent out as we get closer to the event. For those who are new to Skyridge, please take a few moments to look at the band website section regarding concert attire.
Congratulations to 8th graders Minjae D., Renae Y., and Kevin K.! They recently were accepted into the North County Honor Band. They will rehearse in January and then have a one-night-only concert. Pencil in the evening of January 20th for this event at Hockinson HS. I’ll be sending out more info in January.
We’re making some really great progress! Be sure that you’re practicing a little bit each day instead of doing it in big chunks on the weekends: you’ll improve much more quickly that way. Use the online resources that come with your band books, too.
Reminder: bring a pencil every day to class.
If you find yourself struggling with some concepts in Band, please come see Mr. Sanchez to make an appointment. Beginning Band can be challenging for some students, and there’s no shame in asking for a little help: it’s how we all grow!
Our next playing test will come out next week. You should all have received feedback in your school E-Mail account about the last playing test. If you haven’t, please contact Mr. Sanchez.
7th and 8th Grade
Playing tests come out next week (I promise!). We’ll talk more about that in class on Monday.
Come see some live theatre today!
Mr. Sanchez will be playing trumpet in the pit orchestra today in the Lakeridge HS production of Mary Poppins in Lake Oswego. There is a 2 p.m. matinee and a 7 p.m. evening performance. You can find more information about purchasing tickets here. Hopefully there’ll be some friendly faces in the audience from Camas!
That’s it for this time. Have a wonderful weekend!
