September / October DIRECTOR’S LETTER
Dear Parents / Guardians of Mr. Everts’ Students:
Schedules and classes are now in place and we are focused on a solid curriculum certain to make a difference in the life of every student in our instrumental music program. I would like to share some ways that you can help support our program.
Encouraging Parent / Guardian. Competence is the result of dedicated “time on task.” Music learning, music performance, and music appreciation are the outcomes of study, practice, and guided listening. With limited rehearsal time, it is imperative that students invest extra time in nurturing their talents and improving their skills. Please encourage a positive practice schedule. Remember that practice time must be framed as a benefit and not as a disciplinary penalty.
Loyal, Appreciate Audience. The best audience is always parents. You are faced with a full agenda in your personal and professional life, and you are challenged to adjust your schedule to more to your son / daughter than words can describe. Music is a family affair. Don’t miss the opportunity to celebrate your child’s talent.
Booster Member. There are many ways to aid and participate in our parent support organization. Please join with other parents who realize the far-reaching potential of the arts and take advantage of the synergy created by sharing a common educated philosophy. This organization ensures the future of quality music education for your son / daughter and his / her fellow artists.
The instrumental music program at Dublin High School continues to thrive because of a group of students who are better understanding and supportive of the expectations of our department and exemplary parental support. YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
I look forward to visiting with you in the near future.
In the interest of your child & Agape,
Paul D. Everts
