Private Lessons:
Our participation in private lessons has dramatically slipped over the past few years.  Private lessons are the single best way to help our program succeed on the field and the concert stage.  Attached is the list of preferred teachers.  With concert band auditions and solo and ensemble around the corner, now is the time to start!  One thing to understand is that taking private lessons is not like the relationship with a tutor for academics.  The biggest difference is that with music lessons you are committing to a longer period of time.  We do not want to see students being "tutored" in order to be ready for auditions.  To help gain musical knowledge, music instruction is a longer journey that is much like an athlete training.

If you have any questions about how private lessons work or if they would be good for your child, please email Jeremy Bradstreet at <bradstreet_jeremy@dublinschools.net>

Bradstreet Notes:

Please see above for special information about the Band Banquet.  This is a fun night of reminiscing about the year and also recognizing so many amazing accomplishments.

We are so proud of the kids for their "civic" duty to represent our school.  Starting at the July 4th parade and now continuing at every DC football game, our students are giving back to their school and their community.  We take our role of being the "sounds" of the DC football team very seriously.  If you notice, we try to be a part of the game and not just attend the game.  Our football coaches love the fact that the band is doing their best to make the sidelines chaotic for the opposing team.  We do this by screaming and yelling and not by distracting the team with our horns.  

Friday will be a late return back to DCHS from Findlay, OH.  Sorry about the late night.  We wish every event was local and didn't have late arrivals but this, like many of our events, are out of our control.  Thanks for all that you do to make our school, band and of course the students as awesome as possible!
