September 2018​musical notes fall.jpg

For the first two weeks,  Mr. Drotar will be just working with the grade 6 students in slightly longer start-up lessons with the following schedule:​
St. Angela Merici: Sept. 10, Sept. 11 (day 5, 1)




St. Angela – Monday Sept 10 (clarinet, flute, percussion) & Tuesday Sept 11 (alto saxophone, tenor saxophone, trombone, trumpet); Monday Sept 17 (clarinet, flute, percussion) & Tuesday Sept 18 (alto saxophone, tenor saxophone, trombone, trumpet)

Students have been asked to bring their instruments, books, and pencils to these lessons – however, if students do not have their instruments for the first lesson, they will be fine as the majority of the class is learning to read music and the portion that uses the instrument is repeated at the beginning of the second lesson (so students will not be behind).

Following these first two lessons, students will start with the regular schedule which will be given out at that time.



Following this, grade 7 and 8 students will start lessons as well on our regular lesson schedule which is:
St. Angela - Day 5 and 1 (regular lesson schedule starts September 25th and 26th)

Full Band will begin:
Grade 7 and 8 on September 25th (day 5, and every day 5 that follows)
Grade 6 on October 2nd (day 5, and every day 5 that follows)
