have any questions, please contact me via email
Students are asked to dress appropriately on the night of the concert. Black bottoms and white tops. Boys are asked to wear dress pants, dress shirt, tie and shoes. Girls are asked to wear a dress or skirt/pants with a blouse and shoes. No jeans, tee shirts or sneakers please. If these garments are not in your wardrobe, please make the appropriate substitutions. As explained to the students in class, they may substitute a dark color (gray, blue, brown, green) on the bottom, a light color (cream, beige, eggshell, off-white) on the top, boots or black sneakers if necessary.
If your instrument seems to be out of tune, you can use the tuning notes below.
You'll need to use your ear to match the pitches.
*Hint: If you hear a wave
when you play with the tone on the site, it is not in tune. Adjust your fine
tuning peg until the wave goes away. Be careful not to over tighten the large
tuning peg at the top of the instrument if it is very far from the pitch. (You
don't want to break a string.) If you are afraid to try this, just bring it in
and I will help you.
Play some music games in the activity section or visit some of the useful sites
in the links section.
Practice and have fun with music!
