Hello Family Members of the 5 th Grade,
I am Mr. Tyler Parkridge, the band director here at Hugoton USD 210. I am so excited to teach your children this year and to start them on their band journey! We are having our Instrument Purchase/Rental Night on Monday, August 29 starting at 5:00 PM at the High School Link Cafeteria. This event is done in conjunction with Senseney Music, our music store based out of Wichita. The evening will be a come-and-go event, but it is a busy evening with a lot to cover. The goal is that nobody is there for longer than an hour from the time you enter the door, try out instruments, consult with me, talk with Senseney Music about purchasing/renting an instrument, and finally leave with an instrument in hand. We will not accept anyone in to start the process
after 6:30 PM, so make sure and arrive in a timely manner. Your children have already been given some strong background info about what instruments they can play in band, and we are reviewing how to read and write music prior to Instrument Night, all of which is to help them be more informed on their choice. This is the last step before we begin making music together! I can’t wait to meet all of you next week and start making lots of music with these amazing kids! If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at email@example.com.
Have a great year and GO EAGLES,
Director of Bands
