Remote Student Instrument Pick Up

Posted by Dean Surface on September 18, 2020 in Uncategorized with No Comments


Hello Remote Mustang Band Students!

This is a reminder that our pick up date will be Saturday, September 19th from 10am to 12pm. Instrument pick up will be for students that were selected to play instruments that are school-owned. These instruments include: Bassoon, Oboe, French Horn, Euphonium, and Tuba. For every school owned instrument, Keller ISD has a required usage fee of $100 which can be paid here. This fee covers usage of the instrument for one school year. In addition to the fee, Keller ISD has an instrument usage contract agreement that is to be digitally signed and returned through email. Our usage contract will be sent to you in the coming days as well. If students were selected to play other instruments not previously mentioned, those are to be acquired as student-owned instruments through our local music store, Bell’s Music Shop or other reputable music store.

We are very excited to get started in teaching students about their musical instruments and being a part of our band program. If there is a conflict with coming to pick up a school owned instrument on the date below please email Quentin Knox at quentin.knox@kellerisd.net to schedule a time to pick up the instrument. Once again, thank you for your patience!

Private Lessons Interest Form

Posted by Dean Surface on September 14, 2020 in Uncategorized with No Comments


Good Evening,

Thank you all for your patience as we finished placing your children on instruments these past few weeks! Now that everyone knows what instrument they’re playing, we wanted to highly encourage you to enroll in private lessons! The band staff in the Timber Creek HS feeder pattern have assembled a fantastic staff of private lesson instructors for the 2020-2021 school year. Private lessons offer your child a unique experience that he or she cannot receive in a regular classroom setting. If you choose to participate in the program, your child will meet with a private instrumental specialist once a week at an arranged time virtually. Lesson times range from twenty minutes to an hour. During this time, your student will have 100% of the instructor’s attention. These lessons will be geared toward helping your son or daughter become a truly great musician by teaching them how to improve their musical skills. While we as a band staff strive to work with each student regularly, we are limited because of class size and time. We feel that private lessons are a wonderful resource that contributes a great amount to the student’s musical success.

If your child wants to take private lessons this year, we need you to fill out the attached form below. Even if you are currently taking lessons or have expressed an interest previously, you MUST fill this form out again. The information from this form will be sent to private instructors who will then contact you to begin scheduling.

Thank you!

Hello Concert Band!

I hope you all had an amazing and relaxing weekend! Last week was productive and we are excited to keep the momentum going! This week, we are asking in person and remote students to bring their Essential Elements book to class everyday. Reminders: Students have a video assignment and practice record due today on google classroom.

Weekly Video Assignment: This week’s video assignment will come from the Essential Element book and we will assign this specific line later in the week. There will be a week 4 practice record as well.

ATTENTION REMOTE STUDENTS: Starting this week, you will only be meeting in person with us on Monday, Thursday, and Friday. Tuesday and Wednesday are practice/pass off days for you. If you run into any issues working the new material please reach out for help.

Students also have recorded assignments each week via google classroom. Please remind them to get these done each week. We are working to help students learn to manage their time, please help them at home with this as well. If they have a busy weekend then they need to do their weekly recordings before the weekend. “Not having time” this weekend is not an excuse for pass offs or practice time!

Hello Wind Ensemble,

Slowly but surely we are getting to do more playing and class is starting to feel like band class again!

All students should be turning weekly homework sheets every Sunday. This sheet informs them on what to practice for the week as well as allows them to document what they worked on. They need to log their minutes and total before hitting submit to turn the assignment in for a weekly grade.

Students also have recorded assignments each week via google classroom. Please remind them to get these done each week. We are working to help students learn to manage their time, please help them at home with this as well. If they have a busy weekend then they need to do their weekly recordings before the weekend. “Not having time” this weekend is not an excuse for pass offs or practice time!

We are getting our first full band song this week! If you are a remote student and need a physical copy please email me and I will have it for you in the front office. If you can print at home then you will be able to access your part via google classroom (it is not there yet!).

This week we are also starting technique sheets in class. For remote students those can be found HERE.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and we look forward to making music with you all tomorrow!

Wind Ensemble Week 3

Posted by Dean Surface on September 7, 2020 in Uncategorized with No Comments


Hello Wind Ensemble,

Last week was GREAT, we were able to play (for just a little bit) outside! This week we will be playing inside and outside using proper instrument protection!

Students MUST fill out a weekly homework sheet logging their minutes practiced each day. By the time you get this email that sheet will be posted in google classroom!

This week students will submit 4 recordings, Concert F, Bb, Eb, and Ab scales. We will work on them in class and remotely. If students practice every night they will get a 100 easy! The scales we are playing are one octave (unless they are ready to do more) and can be found in the packet of music we handed out this week!

Thank you,

Dean Surface

Concert Band- Week 3

Posted by Dean Surface on September 7, 2020 in Uncategorized with No Comments


Hello Concert Band!

I hope you all had an amazing and relaxing three day weekend! Last week was such a great week! We were able to start making music with both our in person and remote student and this week we will be continuing that trend.

This week students will be filling out their virtual practice reports DAILY! Practicing daily is going to be a key component to growing as a musician even more now than ever and we are looking forward to the growth that students will show.

We have on video assignment due this week: Record yourself playing the Concert F scale. We will be covering this in class and remotely as well. These scales are going to be one octave and will require correct articulation. If students follow the daily practice record this will be an easy A!

Thank you!
