6th and 7th Graders - May 19, 2023

Updated: May 19, 2023

We made it! Thank you so much to all our band families for an incredible year.


This newsletter contains important information for next year.


INSTRUMENTS – STORE RENTALS ‐ Students will keep their instrument rentals from the music store over the summer. After the first year, some students consider a step‐up instrument from the beginner model. Brook Mays is having a summer sale on June 9 and 10 for those that are interested.

INSTRUMENTS – SCHOOL OWNED ‐ Continuing students have been issued a school-owned instrument to use over the summer.


PLAYING – Please encourage your student to continue to play over the summer! We want to be able to build on the awesome skills they acquired this year. SUMMER LESSONS are a fantastic way to keep moving forward over the summer. Contact your student's private lessons teacher for their availability and teaching location over the summer.

Due to the importance of the preparation for Build the Beat and the 2023-2024 school year, all rehearsals and performances are required for all Pearson Band members. We understand that some families may still be out of town or on vacation during this time. If your family will be out of town, please communicate that with your band director ASAP.


We are looking forward to both our summer band camp and the Build the Beat Pep Rally! It will be a lot of fun to see everyone again and make music together.
