Sousaphone Lesson Using Tubas
L-R: Yasir Talley, Mr. Goode

Friday (2/15/19) was a slow day. I used the time to give
one on one lessons. It turned out to be a productive day.
Just to mix things up a bit, I had the sousaphone player use
a tuba. We made excellent progress. I can hear the
development of his sound. He is going to be great.


Alto Saxophone Players on Their Own
L-R: S-Netchem H. Castro-Dockery, Christina Wiles

The saxophones were able to practice on their own
playing music excersises from the method book. We
are still building skills and learning to improve tone
quality. We will have practice on Saturday (2/16/19)
at 1:00 PM in the band room.

Still accepting new members for the Marching Band.
