Canfield Village Middle School parents had a unique opportunity to be part of the band! As the school year started, the Class of 2024, 81 member 5th grade band experienced “Jump Start” lessons. This is a week of intensive instruction for each instrument. With the help of retired music educators and local music instructors the students learned how to open a case without damaging the instrument, learned how to form the correct embouchure (mouth formation) for each instrument as well as how to make a tone on the mouthpiece. At the end of the week, 5th grade band parents were invited to “sit in” with their child and become part of the band.
The first band concert is on Tuesday, December 13 at 7:00 PM in the Canfield High School auditorium. The concert is free and open to the public.
