People learn music because someone inspired them to. Students gain skill at music because they have someone there to guide them. Students gain appreciation for music because a parent supported them. Without any of these three, music would be very little indeed.It is for this reason I get to say thank you to all the parent support I saw last night at the Fine Arts Parent AGM. We have a new executive with the organization, and almost every role is filled, even after adding more positions to the board. It is obvious to me that the Fine Arts are alive and thriving, and I believe very strongly that parents have much to do with that, so again, thank you.
All students should have instruments now. As such, all students should have their instruments in class, too. Should they not, students must be prepared for it to affect their marks. Check http://www.ndcfinearts.com/ for details on when startup clinics occur for your student, as they begin immediately!
Should your student be found without the supplies they need for their instrument by startup clinic time, I will be ordering what is needed for you. This is an administrative task I'd rather not have to worry about, so please make sure your student is well-stocked.
Again, thank you parents for all your support. I can see this is going to be an amazing year!
