Important Message from Mr. Patterson:

Monday, March 30, 2020

In this troubling time, extra-curricular activities are not feasible and I, as a band director, cannot assign specific work for students.

However, as a mentor, Daddy, and musician, I can give you some great advice:

Parents, students, fellow humans: Take some time…Enjoy the slow…Embrace your families….

Then…

Break up the monotony of your day by spending time away from social media learning something new – “Music” – it’s not hard to do – requires zero talent to start.  Learn to read music, learn some new scales, learn how chords work, study music theory, sing, play an instrument – a little everyday will go a long way.

God Bless,

Mr. P
