Music and Tech Notes – May 21

The end of the school year is fast approaching and we have one last big performance before heading off into summer break. This performance will feature music from all three of our musical groups, and will be the culmination of our students’ year long work.

The Spring Concert is Thursday, May 31 @ 6:30 PM. There will be a repeat performance for the Lewis student body and staff on Friday, June 1 @ 1:30. I’ve sent out information to all families and will post the info on my blog. Hope to see you there!

Music & Tech Notes – May 14

The Spring Concert is Thursday, May 31st. Band, Recorder Club and Boomin’ Beats will be performing at 6:30 PM on the Lewis stage. They will then play for the student body on Friday June 1st. For Band and Recorder this will be their final performance. Band students will need to turn in their instruments after that school performance. If Band student would like to rent an instrument over the summer, they will have to arrange that with their middle school band teacher. If you have questions, please contact me. The Boomin’ Beats will have one last performance to help open the PTA End of Year Picnic on Friday June 1st at 5:30 PM. I will send out more detailed info to families later this week.

Music & Tech Notes – May 7

I first want congratulate all Art Night musicians. Band, Recorder Club and Boomin’ Beats, you all did a fabulous job that night, and you should be very proud of your achievement. I also want to acknowledge the Boomin’ Beats musicians who came back the very next day for a second high energy performance with the Buckman Choir and for the Lewis student body.

I can’t believe we are in the final month of the school year. All groups will still be meeting at their regular rehearsal times through the month of May. All three groups will be performing some new material for the Spring Concert which will be on Thursday May 31st at 6:30PM. I will be sending out more information on this concert in the next week or two.

This week I will not be at school on Thursday so Band and Recorder Club will not be meeting. I will be back on Friday for Boomin’ Beats rehearsal.

Music & Tech Notes – April 30

The Lewis Art Night is this Thursday, May 3rd at 6:30PM.

7:00 3rd Grade Recorder Club
7:30 Boomin’ Beats

If you have a Lewis T-shirt or this year’s Run for the Arts shirt please wear it with blue or black pants. No shorts please. If you are dressed up to be a docent, that will be fine too!

5th Grade band students should meet at 6:00PM in the music room to warm up.
Recorder Club and Boomin’ Beats should meet me on the stage 10 minutes before their scheduled performance time.

Music & Tech Notes – April 9

Welcome back 5th graders! I’ve been checking in with the 5th grade group and it sounds like it was another great camp experience.

With the first week of April in the books, we get that much closer to Art Night on Thursday May 3rd. All three groups will be performing for the event. The this first performance so close, every rehearsal becomes that much more important. This week I’m asking for all band members to come to both Tuesday and Thursday rehearsals. Boomin’ Beats will meet on Wednesday after school this week as there is no school on Friday. Recorder Club will meet at it’s usual time, Thursday before school. Remember, daily home practice is crucial at this time of year. A student practicing just 10-15 minutes a day can make tremendous improvement.
