Volunteer opportunity for Parent/Student

I leave school around 4:11 to avoid more traffic and to make it to Hawthorne by 6:30 for workout.  I swim for my health and I can't make it to the pool on time if I am kept late.

Students see me in person for questions & concerns:  12:30-12:40 Monday-Friday and Monday 3-3:30

ZEN, IPOD or ZUNE  MP3 players     I find the ZEN the best. 
MP3's are very watered down music files.  Wav files can be saved at a higher bit rate
You may not hear the difference, but you might feel the difference.  There is less of an
emotional response to mp3's.

    Practice, Practice, Practice & you shall gain happiness & options for your future.

Why not
CHOOSE to try, CHOOSE to do your best, CHOOSE to be on time, CHOOSE to be positive, CHOOSE to listen--which is to be respectful of other players--and CHOOSE to have a good time playing music.  You choose your attitude.  Which attitude will you be wearing tomorrow?

Be prepared, focus on MUSIC, Listen, participate, No Excuses, Challenge yourself
finger through music silently what you didn't get to practice at home, be encouraging
