A note to parents: Parents, your help is essential in the progress of your band student. A band director can
easily tell which students practice a home, but only parents can monitor regular, sustained practice time.
Today, many students want success without the necessary hard work, but the study of music will teach students
that hard work, consistency, and discipline are the only ways to truly progress and grow. These are
lessons that can only be learned over time through delayed gratification. I often tell parents that the byproducts
of music are often more important than the music itself.

Please help ensure that your child is as successful as possible in band by practicing at home. Everyone is a
starter/performer and contributes to the whole ensemble!
