• Tips for Playing Over the Summer!


    *Keep playing!

    -It really is that simple. Find ways to keep playing. 

    -Play from your lesson book.

    -Head to Robert M Sides Family Music and check out their book selection for your instrument. Lots of fun selections!

    -Check out https://www.jwpepper.com/sheet-music/welcome.jsp, https://www.amazon.com/, https://www.sheetmusicplus.com/, and many sheet music websites to find new music.

    -Check out the website https://www.8notes.com/ for an awesome resource!


    *Play in small ensembles with your friends!

    -Find a friend or two (or more) who play instruments and play duets, trios, quartets - the options are endless!

    -You can even play in small groups with friends who play string instruments or piano!

    -Make sure you are staying safe when playing instruments with your friends (wear masks or flute shields and bell covers).


    *Make Flipgrid Videos!

    -Flipgrid Videos are built into our PokeBand Go! Summer Challenge, but you can also make Flipgrid videos just for fun, too! 


    *Take private lessons!

    -Keep up with your playing by studying with a private lesson instructor who is a specialist on your instrument.

    -Contact Miss Steinbacher if you have any questions regarding private lesson instructors in our area.


    The main theme here is just have fun and keep playing!
