believe very strongly in integrating music and other fine arts into our
classrooms. Classes are given in music instruction, violin and band. We
are very fortunate to have wonderful teachers who provide this
instruction to our students.
The Tierra Buena Bands
gave a wonderful Spring Concert on April 16, 2009. The Beginning Band
played as well or better than ever, and was one of the largest groups TB
has had. The Intermediate Band featured the Trombone section with a fun
sliding solo. A lot of hard work went into that group's music. The
Advanced Band was in top form playing some very challenging music, and
making it sound like much older students were playing. Everyone enjoyed
the cooler temperatures also.
The final gig of the season is
Graduation. The Intermediate and Advanced Bands (minus the 8th graders
of course) combine for the biggest performance of the year for them.
Parental support has been a great boon to all of the students. And many
thanks to all of the parents who have supported our weekly Popcorn Sale.
We couldn't have done it without you. -Mr. Hall
Orchestra, combined with B.V. and A.K. went to “Music in the Parks,
Competition and Festivals” on May 9, 2009. The day began with a
competition with many other schools from around Northern California.
Then all the contestants went for a fun day at Discovery Kingdom where
they waited for the announcement of the winners. (Drum roll please...)
We won! First Place in our division! We received a beautiful trophy,
however, it will be displayed at Butte Vista at this time.
