Earlier this month, we were very privileged to help support the Strong Foundations 6th Grade Honor Band at Sioux City East High School.
It’s days like today that we’re reminded of what a wonderful community Sioux City is! Yesterday we noticed a that a Bach Strad Professional Trumpet priced at $2,899. was missing from our show floor…Upon further investigation, we realized the instrument had been stolen and was listed on Facebook for sale! Less than 3 hours later, Sgt. Bill Melville assembled a team and the amazing Sioux City Police Department set-up a sting, recovered the stolen trumpet and arrested the thief!
MSFQ stands for "More to Start, Fewer to Quit"
Playing in a school band can be an enriching experience for students. It allows them to develop their musical skills, work in a team, and perform in front of an audience. As a band director, keeping students engaged and motivated to continue playing in the school band is key to building a successful program. The Music Achievement Council has put together MSFQ (More to Start, Fewer to Quit) tips, and we have included them on our site for easy access!
