Poudre School District's Message regarding Summer Music as of 2.10.2021
The Poudre School District is proud to offer an intensive summer music program for the band and orchestra students in PSD. For students just starting their experience, this program is the first step to success – with guidance on everything from opening the case and assembling the instrument to their first performance. For students who already play a band or orchestra instrument, the summer session allows students to continue to refine their technique and continue to bond with their friends and teachers over the summer.
It is our sincere hope that we will be able to offer summer music classes during the summer of 2021. Our first priority will be to the safety of the students and staff, so we are asking people to save these dates with the understanding that if Poudre School District or the Larimer Health Department determine it in the students best interest to delay or cancel the program, we will make the adjustments and inform parents and students as quickly as we can. As regulations shift, please know, that all requirements regarding numbers of students, distancing and masks will be followed.
Summer Advanced Music (for any band or orchestra student who will be in grades 9-12 in 2021-2022): June 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9, 10, 14, 15, 16, 17
Summer Intermediate Music (for any band or orchestra student who will be in grades 7 or 8 in 2021-2022); Monday-Friday, July 19-August 6
Summer Beginning Music (for any band or orchestra student who will be starting an instrument in 2021-2022); Monday-Friday, July 19-August 6
Classes are offered in the mornings (beginning classes are 50 minutes; intermediate and advanced classes are 80 minutes) at numerous sites around Fort Collins and Wellington. We anticipate schedules and early registration for summer classes will begin after spring break. Registration information will be distributed by our current music teachers, or 5th grade classroom teachers, and our summer music web-site will go live at that time (https://sites.google.com/a/psdschools.org/psd-summer-music/).
Questions about the summer music program should be directed to the music teacher at the school your child will attend in the fall, or to Scott Schlup (sschlup@psdschools), summer music coordinator.
