ISD 197 Middle School Summer Jazz Band
Dear Parents of Middle Schoolers,
I’m Steve Truran – director of the Henry Sibley Jazz Combo and codirector of the Henry Sibley Jazz Ensembles. I’m excited to announce
that Summer Jazz Band will be offered for Middle Schoolers in ISD197, and I invite you to consider this exciting opportunity for your
A Fun New Experience for All Instruments and Ability Levels!
Whether your child is interested in trying something new, or in getting a jump-start for the fall, this exciting opportunity is for them! Summer tends to be a time when kids don’t play their instruments, and this loss of momentum can affect their overall enthusiasm and motivation, thus leaving them
with a need to make up ground in the fall. Middle School Summer Jazz Band will help your child improve their technical skills, gain knowledge about jazz, and keep enthusiasm for playing their instrument – all while having fun with friends!
