Keep your instruments over the summer, especially to practice!
Playing an instrument is like keeping fit for a sport. If we all don’t practice until August, we will be very out of shape and may even forget important concepts! Returning a rental may also void any rent-to-own contracts – check with the store you are renting from on this. Try practicing at least an hour weekly. Students that have school owned horns may sign out their instruments over the summer.
What can I practice?
Summer private lessons are very beneficial! Contact Zeagler’s or Alison’s. Lessons are also available at EAHS by contacting Nicole.Mlynczak@apsb.org or Patricia.Roussel@apsb.org

Congratulations to all the performers who played today at the District IV Solo & Ensemble Festival! This festival is design for students to perform solos and/or duets for assessment. The students selected their own music and did much of the preparation on their own. We are very proud of how well prepared they all were!
Everyone who performed today either received a 1 or 2 out of 5, the two highest ratings! Great job Mustang Band!
