Hello to the band students, and the parents of band students, of Lakeview, Alvin Buckwold, Brevoort Park, and Wildwood Schools, and a hearty welcome to the Big Band Blog! Have you ever wondered what your child is working on in the band room? Wonder no more! This blog serves as a monthly, and at times weekly, snapshot of our classroom activities. Can’t quite remember where and when that all-important band concert takes place? Well, you’ve come to the right place. These questions and countless others will be answered right here.
My reason for creating this blog is simple: open and direct communication between school and home is an integral part of the educational process. And, as I’m sure most of you can appreciate, as a band director at four different schools and with a class list almost 200 strong, I often find it difficult to maintain consistent lines of communication with parents. The Big Band Blog aims to address this issue.
Mostly, I want this site to meet your needs, the needs of my students and their parents. So, if the blog fails to address a pertinent issue please let me know. I’ll do my very best to answer each and every question, and I encourage you to drop by on a regular basis for important information about the band program. Further, for those who are interested —
