Hi, Let's Play Music families! We're nearing the end of the school year, and that means we're also getting close to the end of the Let's Play Music year, too. Here are the details you need to know!
Details for EVERYONE: Children should wear plain-colored pants/shorts/skirts that do not have holes in them, their Let's Play Music/Sound Beginnings t-shirt, and flat shoes that are strapped onto their feet (no flip flops or high heels, please). T-shirts will be given to students as they pay the $25 enrollment fee for next year, and enroll online for class. Please make sure hair is out of the child's face, and that they are clean and neat.
I'm not looking for Sunday Best, but I want the children to look clean and neat. This is a celebration of the musical things the kids have learned this year. We are NOT a performing group, and it is OK if they're nervous, or if they make mistakes. I'll start songs over if we have challenges, and keep the recital short and sweet.

Each recital should last 25-40 minutes. Please bring a snack or treat to share.

Sound Beginnings Students
Children at this age are often very eager to share, or may experience stage fright - and often both at the same time. Please feel free to come on stage with your children, and don't force them if they're really nervous.
