WOW!!!  I cannot believe the enthusiasm and energy here at Westwood this year.  We are all so thankful to be back in classes and making music together. Everyone involved in these first few classes have felt the great warmth that music brings to our lives.  

At this point everyone has an instrument and music and we are already deep into the start of our musical year.  Folders have been assigned, music has been distributed and a beautiful noise can be heard from the band room throughout the day.

As we progress, help is always available at lunch and after school for a mini-lesson or just a quick question.  Assignment help and/ or homework assistance is always available.

First assignments are just around the corner and Gr.9 and 10 students will be working out of a new method book this year... look for a one time payment in cash online shortly to cover our costs.  As well, I will be collecting rental and percussion fees at the beginning of October.

As always, we are going to work hard to yearn your praise and applause as we prepare our music for you. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at your earliest convenience.  For specific class information, you just have to click on the class drop down menu for the latest intel.

Fingers closed for a live performance this year.
