Today, School District 27J announced that all after school activities are canceled until further notice. This includes the Orchestra Academy.
We will not have rehearsal this Monday, March 16th, and we were already going to miss Monday, March 23rd due to Spring Break. I will continue to follow what 27J decides to determine when our rehearsals will resume.
I will try to offer increased digital content so that students can better practice at home. I also invite you to send videos of your kids playing or to ask me any questions. I will happily send a video back to help them. The practice videos I have made should also help students in the Intermediate and Advanced Orchestras practice at home.
I am also looking into options to give small individual lessons or group lessons via the web. I will let you know when I gather more information.
Thank you for your patience, and as always, feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns. The most important thing is that students are still spending time practicing their instruments at home. Thank you for your support!
