Hello Madera Band Parents,
If your child(ren) is(are) in 5th or(and) 6th grade, we are still accepting new players to the 5th/6th grade band, run by Ms. Tiffany Carrico, Portola Middle School Band Teacher.
She holds rehearsals on Tuesday nights (5th grade band) and Wednesday nights (6th grade band) from 6:00-7:30pm.
This is a free program which Ms. Carrico is offering to the students to increase their playing and introduce them to new and fun music. They play at various school functions, including occasional Portola events.
The band is pulled from Madera, Kensington, Washington, Harding, and Fairmont elementary schools. We currently have about 20 instrumentalists per band.
Please bring your child(ren) to the corresponding grade’s band rehearsal in the Portola Middle School Band Room (you’ll see the rest of us filing in) to have them join.
She will be accepting new players until the end of January.
Helen Couture Rodriguez
