Parent Information

  • Instrument Rental Information:

      Instruments are available for loan from the school district for a fee of $112. Students who play large instruments (Cello and String Bass) will be issued an instrument for home practice and a separate instrument for use at school at no extra charge.  Checks should be made payable to "Treasurer-Hendrick Hudson School District" and should be delivered to Mr. Preece in the orchestra room. Please don't hesitate to call Mr. Preece with any finacial concerns. 


    Practice Management:

         Orchestra students are expected to practice at least 20 minutes a day, 4 days per week.  Please provide a quiet location where your child can practice.  A folding music stand is also a good investment, and you can purchase one at any music store for about $20.
         What should your child practice?  Each week your child will have an assigned page in the method book as well as scales and orchestra music to learn.  Assessments will occur throughout the year on method book exercises, scales and orchestra music.
