From the Directors: Welcome to another year of musical excellence and community feeling in Rio Band. The directors are building the band email lists and have already sent some information to band families. The list is a work in progress, so please respond with any additions or modifications, or if you have not recieved an email, let Mr. Murray know at firstname.lastname@example.org . Email is a primary means of communication with families, so please take the time to read them.
The first general meeting of Rio Americano Band Boosters (RABB) will be at 7:15pm, next Tuesday, August 27th, in the band room. All parents (and students) are welcome and encouraged to attend. Getting involved in RABB is a great way to support your child’s musical education, while helping to maintain the standard of excellence we all have come to expect from Rio Band.
Please check out the 2013/14 Band Handbook. A copy was sent via email or you can access it under the RABB tab on this website. A band calendar was sent via email and the also events appear here on the website. Below, under Quick Links, you’ll find a list of suggested private teachers on various instruments. Please let us know if you have suggestions for other teachers to add to the list.
The year is off to a great start. Our returning students are augmented by an exceptionally enthusiastic and talented freshman class. Everyone has been positive and cooperative. The vibe in the band room is the best it’s been in years. It’s great to have the new kids and their families aboard!
