Letter to Parents from the Music Department

May 4 th 2018

Dear Grade 5 Parents,

As we approach the end of this 2017/18 School Year, the time has come for all students to return the instrument that they have been borrowing from UNIS. We will be doing a check of all instruments before the summer holiday to replace broken or missing strings, accessories and small repairs. These costs will be covered by UNIS.

Hopefully, we won’t have any larger breakages or missing instruments
which will require your attention. These costs might be extra under the loan agreement form.

This letter is to let you know the days that students must hand in their instrument and have it checked off by Ms Sally and Ms Mai. Prior to this day, students have a responsibility to thoroughly clean their band instrument at home. We will be watching some youtube links on how to do this.

Here is a link to get started.
BAND INSTRUMENTS – RETURNED FRIDAY, MAY 11th 2018
STRINGED INSTRUMENTS – RETURNED WEDNESDAY, May 23 rd

After this day, all instruments will be kept at school to practice during classes for the last few weeks of this school year.

Thank you for your support at home with your child’s instrumental learning. It is great to hear of their enthusiasm to continue learning an instrument next year in Middle School. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with this particular group of young musicians and watching their confidence grow in their learning and performing.

It has been a great year of music making!

Sincerely,
Sally Oxenberry
