Carowinds/Instruments/District Honor Band

Good evening,


The next payment for all chaperones and students of $50 is due tomorrow. Please let me know if you have any questions.


All students should bring their instruments home tonight unless they are participating in Jazz Band tomorrow morning at 7:30 AM. No instrument should stay here over break. Tuba players are to arrange rides or speak with me if their instrument needs to be dropped off.

The second full week back from school is our next chair test. Students will have 1 minute to play as many scales as they can and will play a short etude. The date of the chair test is January 16th during class.

District Honor Band:

If your student has been awarded a spot in the District Honor Band then they will need to submit $70 at their earliest convenience to pay for the hotel. Students will be bused the morning of February 13th and will be under our care until Lunch on Saturday the 15th of February. Our hotel is a wonderful hotel and will provide breakfast for us each morning. Students will be taken to and from all meals and rehearsals until they are met by their parents Saturday. A very detailed outline is set to come out soon but please be patient as this trip is in coordination with the high school and Upper Elementary band programs. All Carrollton kids will travel together and will have a blast with the four band directors in Ringgold, Georgia in February. Keep those dates on your radar and stay tuned for information soon!

Have a wonderful time with your family the next two weeks and please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
