Progress Reports Are Coming
 
Our last round of Progress reports are being sent to you via postal mail.  It will look similar to an invoice, so keep an eye out for it in your mailbox.  Please look over the form with your child. We consider progress reports to be an essential method of communication with our band parents. This is one way we can ensure your child a quality instrumental education. 
 
Progress reports can be a motivational tool and there are benefits beyond the written comments. Reviewing it with your child shows him/her that their participation in band is important and that you are proud of their efforts. The individual comments allow your child to know that his/her director cares about their quality of participation and performance. It is meant to provide integral feedback for student success. 
 
Please read the form carefully and if there are any questions, contact your director personally.  
Summer Lessons
 
Looking for a musical summer activity for your student? Sign-up for summer lessons! All of our teachers make arrangements to offer some sort of summer band activity for their students. 
 
Private lessons are a wonderful opportunity for your child to get one-on-one attention and instrument specific instruction. This personal approach allows students to have a customized lesson, be challenged in new ways, and learn advanced techniques. Band camps can also provide a unique opportunity to better know their peers and experience a high-school setting band experience. 
 
You will be receiving information from your child's band director in the coming weeks with details about summer band activities. Please consider having your child participate in a summer music program to keep the momentum of the past school year going strong.
Summer Band Camps
 
Is your student interested in playing more over the summer? Band camps are a great way to encourage your young musician!  Summer band camp (often on a university campus) offer students experiences that are different from the regular band classroom.  Students will get to work with instrument specific teachers and play with a large ensemble daily!  Many students have life-changing musical experiences at summer band camp.
 
Two of our teachers, Ms. Kim Taube and Ms. Brittany Rennels will be offering a band camp June 24th through the 28th at St. Zachary Catholic School in Des Plaines.  Click here for more information.
 
End of the Year Billing
 
Your last tuition payment for the 2018-2019 school year was billed on May 15th. If you are renting an instrument rental payments will continue over the summer.   but you still have the opportunity to continue renting your instrument over the summer.
 
Instrument Buyout Sale!
 
If you are sure your child wants to continue in band, buying out your instrument now will save you the most money. We are currently offering a 20% discount off your balance until the end of June. This is a great opportunity to buyout your instrument and eliminate your bills over the summer.
 
All of our renters have received a detailed letter explaining your options with your last bill. Please consider your options carefully. If you have any questions or concerns, please call us at 847-805-1800. 

Congrats to all Graduates!
