If you are NOT renting an instrument, you will need to get the book for lessons, so:
Tell the associate what instrument your child plays, and they will be able to tell you if they have the book in stock.
Students may come to lessons even without a book/instrument until the end of October. After this grace period ends, students must have an instrument to participate in the Instrumental Music program.
Mr. Farrell's Mission Statement:
"My mission is to create a positive and enthusiastic learning environment for my students that is based in music, that incorporates social skills, and will leave my students feeling like they have accomplished a sense of personal musical growth for themselves and for the ensemble they perform in. I feel that each student should leave the classroom with a sense of accomplishment, and should have the drive and desire to become a better performer. I want my class to be a step towards incorporating music as a permanent, meaningful part of a student's life".
Let Music change your "L"attitude
Instrumental Music class here at Kresson/Osage Schools is the first step towards incorporating music as a permanent, meaningful part of a student's life. Students learn not only the fine motor skills on whichever instrument they choose, but they will also learn life skills as well. Playing with an ensemble not only teaches children to play with large groups, but it also helps to develop the aural skills needed to develop a general appreciation for music. The students have a small group lesson once a week to help them develop technique, reading, and small group ensemble playing. During the Winter/Spring, the students come to a second large group band lesson with all the instruments present. The students learn to blend their own sound with the sounds of other students/instruments. They learn how to conduct themselves in large group activities, and how to help each other make music as a band, not as an individual.
