Hello MVMMS Band Families,
A big “Congratulations!” to all the Band students for a fantastic concert last night! They had very little time together as a combined Band and worked very hard in a short amount of time to bring it all together. They did a great job navigating the many challenges involved in merging each individual grade into the full Band. When executed as well as they did, these things are never even known by an audience. I applaud them for this big success!
I hope the students will take away the lesson of how multiple levels and phases of both preparation and teamwork – from individual practice at home, working with partners, as a class at each grade level, and finally as a combined group – can all come together for such a great final product/presentation. It is a truly rewarding experience for me to see all their hard work come together as it did last night.
Best wishes for the New Year!
