News from the Band Room

Apr 8th, 2015

The marching band, Mpls Street Beat, is preparing for the 2015 season by practicing the fun marching songs. Our first gig is at the wonderful May Day Parade at Powderhorn Park on Sunday May 3 from 1-3pm. Last year we were 30 members strong!

The guitar students just finished a finger exercise contest called shredding. The winners are: 2nd grade Nathan M, 3rd grade Jackie V, 4th grade Reagan L, 5th grade Sarah Jane S, 6th grade Lizzie S. The winners received a big candy of their choice.

I’m looking for students that might be interested in trombone and saxophone to help balance the band. Students can come down to the band room to try out instruments if they are interested. Call 612-823-4394 ext 239 or email me at
