6th Grade Start-Up Clinics

Woodwinds and Percussion - Wednesday, September 3rd

Brass - Thursday, September 4th

Both evenings will run from 6PM - 8PM.   Please plan to have students at Cario at 5:45PM so clinics can start on time.  This is a required clinic where your child will work with professional musicians and teachers to begin learning their instrument.  The startup clinic gets the kids off to a great start.  We look forward to seeing everyone there!
