Band Family Picnic
Thursday, August 25th, we will be hosting our annual Band Family Picnic from 5-7 pm at Frisco Commons Park (8000 McKinney Rd, Frisco, TX 75034). We will be serving pizza and drinks at the pavilion. This event is open to all family members!
Tickets are $6 per person, and that covers the pizza, drinks, and pavilion rental. Tickets can be purchased on Charms through the Charms store. A video tutorial can be found HERE. Tickets can also be paid for by cash (exact change only) or check (made out to the Pearson Band Parent Association) and turned in to the band hall at school. Please seal any cash or checks in an envelope with your student's name, the purpose of the money (Family Picnic) and how many tickets you are purchasing labeled on the outside. Tickets must be purchased by Wednesday, August 24th at 8 AM so that I can put in the order for the pizza.
We will be in need of several volunteers for this event! Please click HERE for available volunteer opportunities. Please include your band student's name in the comment section so that I know which kiddo you belong to 🙂
We are looking forward to a great celebration with our band family and can't wait to see you next week!
Band Spirit Night at Mici
Join us for our first spirit night of the year at Mici Handcrafted Italian Restaurant!
When: Tuesday August 30th from 11am-9pm
Where: Mici 8244 FM 423, Suite 400
Why: Mention you are with the Pearson Band and we will receive 10% of the profits!!
Who: EVERYONE!!! Tell your family, neighbors, and friends!!!!
We highly recommend all students in Beginning Band sign up for private lessons. Private lessons are a great way to progress on your instrument with the assistance of a master teacher who plays that same instrument. While tutoring in a core class might only be to catch up or erase deficits in the learning process, private lessons are for everyone. Typically, the top musicians in the band program are ones that are in private lessons!
This is the time to sign up. Our teachers are in high demand and teach across several different campuses and districts. Lesson times are first come first serve, so sign up ASAP. You can sign up by reaching out to the lesson teachers directly via email, which can be found at our website HERE. You can also email Mr. Jenson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you were enrolled in lessons last year, make sure you reach out to your lesson teacher to get on their schedule for this year.
