Would you join a Young Scholar’s Band?


Young Scholar’s Academy is starting a band!
 

How would this work?
 

Fifth-through eighth-grade students that are interesting in participating in band would meet once a week after school for instruction with Mr. Roberts.  Students would then practice until the next meeting time.  The meeting time would be on a day that is not conflicting with the Cheer team and Drama Club. Students would be responsible for a fee of $30 per month to pay for the teacher’s salary and any needed music supplies.  Please see Mrs. Elias to use the Arizona tax credit to pay for band. Students would provide their own instruments


When does this start?


The first meeting is August 23rd from 4-5.  If you need to stay at school until 4 to make the meeting you may go to Mrs. Galicia’s classroom (free of charge) until band starts, or sign into the afterschool program ( the standard afterschool fee’s apply).   Band will meet from 4-5 every Thursday in the ART room.  You may stay in Mrs. Galicia’s room from dismissal until band starts, or sign in to the afterschool program.
 

Who is Mr. Roberts?
 

I've been teaching Jr. High band at Bullhead City Jr. High for the past 7 years now. I have started students on all of the different types of band instruments; woodwind, brass, and percussion. For the 7 years prior to that, I was a tuba player in the Navy Band. I have a degree in music ed. from the College of New Jersey. For the past couple of years, I have shared conducting duties for the Colorado River Community Band with some other music teachers in my school district.

 


Can’t wait to see you in the first ever Young Scholar’s Band!
