Congratulations on a successful year of string playing and concerts. It was great hearing the progress the students have made and I look forward to working with many of you for years to come!
The time has come to make decisions about next year. If you are interested in participating in strings as a 5th grader please fill out the form below. 5th grade strings meets twice during a 6 day cycle at the middle school. Students meet once as a small-group and once all together as a full orchestra.
As with this year, you will need to rent an instrument to participate in the strings program. Rental night will be on September 10, 2013 from 6-8 p.m. in the Galvin Middle School cafeteria. Johnson Strings will be present that night with instruments. If you do not wish to rent from Johnson Strings you will be responsible for finding your own rental company. I understand that cost is sometimes an issue. We highly recommend Johnson String Instrument because of the high quality of instruments they provide as well as their commitment to service. If cost is an issue, please feel free to contact me. Cost should not prohibit your child from participating in the wonderful string program that Wakefield has to offer.
As always, feel free to contact me should you have any questions.
I look forward to seeing you all soon!
