New Music for our Spring Concert in May!

We are working on brand new music for our next concert in May. One of the songs we are playing, “Theme for Spring” will be a combined song with beginning and intermediate band students. There are many new notes to learn and you should use your fingering chart to help you learn and memorize these fingerings. Lost your chart?
