Welcome to the 2012-2013 School Year!


PARENTS: Schedules and classes are now in place and we are focused on a solid curriculum certain to make a difference in the life of every student in our music program.  Here are some ways that you can help support our program.

Encouraging Parent: Competence is the result of dedicated "time on task."  Music learning, music performance, and music appreciation are the outcomes of study, practice and guided listening.  With limited rehearsal time, it is imperative that students invest extra time in nurturing their talents and improving their skills.  Please encourage a positive practice schedule.  Remember that practice time must be framed as a benefit and not as a disciplinary penalty.  Look for practice tips on the back of practice sheets and in handbooks.  Private lessons can also enhance their musical study.  Also rememeber that a well-maintained instrument makes for more productive practice and performance.

Audience: The best audience is always parents.  You are faced with a full agenda in your personal and professional lives, and you are challenged to adjust your schedule to accommodate every school function.  However, your presence at our performances will mean more to your child than words can describe.  Music is a family affair.  Don't miss the opportunity to celebrate your child's talent. 

Booster Member: There are many ways to aid and participate in our parent support organization.  Please join with other parents who realize the far-reaching benefits of the arts.  This organization ensures the future of quality music education for all current and future members of our groups.  We currently are in need of energized people to help manage our Weaver concession stand.  Hopefully you have signed up on our concessions volunteer sheet.  All of the proceeds go directly to our Weaver Band and Orchestra Program. For more information, please visit our Hilliard Music Boosters web page.
