All student participating is music activities after school MUST be collected from the music room when the club finishes. Please be mindful with regards to the end of club pick up times. I often have my own commitments after school. When you are late collecting your children from clubs, I am late for my own commitments & appointments.

String Instruments – Some of my string instruments are being returned with damaged zippers. It is VERY important that the zippers are fully opened, all the way round the case before the case is actually opened. When the both the zippers are broken, there is nothing to hold the instrument securely in the case and that instrument can no longer be allowed out on loan.

The Schedule for this week:

Monday, November 27 – Beginner strings meet 8:00 – 8:45

Monday November 27 – Recorder Ninjas WILL NOT be meeting.

Wednesday, November 29 – Strings can check-in for help if needed 8:00 – 8:45

Practice: As our young musicians develop their instrumental skill, practice is essential to their progress. You can help stimulate their motivation to practice by allocating a quiet space and time into their routine with gentle but firm reminders! “Come on, it’s 5 o’clock, it’s time for you to practice now!”

Guitar Grooves: Please look in the guitar tab of the blog. Beg – Plucking the individual strings & playing Yellow submarine & Okey Pokey with the chords G7 & C, Get Up Stand Up & Eleanor Rigby. Adv – Ode To Joy.

Beginner Strings: Practice the statue of liberty, posture sequence, the ant song & See the Little Monkey (with the even longer ladder), Hot Cross Buns & Rolling Along.

Advanced Orchestra – Tzena

If you wish you child to borrow an instrument you are required to complete the instrument loan agreement that you can find here and a weekly practice log to confirm that they are practicing – practice means progress. See the Little Monkey & Bow holds – touching bows to string, rock the boat etc.

Instrument loans through school are free of charge from Friday afternoon to Monday morning, all loaned instruments must be returned by 8am Monday morning so that they are available for other students to use.

Please consider renting or purchasing an instrument to enable a daily practice routine, for rentals I am suggesting Harmony Music Company, they are local to Chula Vista and they have a good range of quality student instruments. They are offering a ‘reduced deposit deal’. Informational flyers will be sent home. Please e-mail me to ask if you wish to check on the size of the instrument your child requires.
