Summer Private Lessons
Summer Lessons are managed and operated by the Hobbs MS Band Booster Board, Inc.
* ( A student should not attempt to audition for Florida All-State Band in September unless they are taking lessons privately elsewhere over the summer or from Mr. C in these summer
lessons. Trying to work up the All-State materials at the start of the new school year will not work. )
2020 Hobbs Band Summer Private Lessons - For returning 2nd year and 3rd year students. (2020 8th graders are invited this year as well.)
This year, summer private lessons will again be offered by Mr. Colón for returning students. Our goal is to have lessons in the band room, since it is just Mr. Colo’n with your student (parent or guardian is welcome in the room, too). In the event the Covid situation causes us to do virtual lessons, it will be on Teams, the same location classes used 4th quarter.
Lessons are for those who show potential to work towards All-County or All-State band next school year, and for any students wanting to improve. You will need to provide transportation to and from the band room.
Lessons will run on the following 3 weeks of summer:
Lesson weeks: July 6th through July 24th. You will get to choose Mondays and Wednesdays, or Tuesdays and Thursdays of these weeks.
Register here online and Pay by June 8th -- $135 for all 6 lessons during the three week period. This year you pay here online. It will go directly into the Band Booster account. Please do not attempt to deliver anything to the HMS front office as they are currently not allowing any hand deliveries to the front office. If you are unable to register electronically, you may contact our Treasurer, Mrs. Gilbride at email@example.com for assistance.
If you need financial assistance for any reason, please fill out the following
form after you register here online. -- https://hobbsmsband.weebly.com/summerfinapplication.html
You are paying a flat rate to reserve 6 half-hour slots, so you cannot pay per lesson. The discount for paying by June 8th (registration after June 8th will incur an additional $15) will help in scheduling everyone, which is very time-consuming to organize. This will also make it possible for you to receive your child’s assigned time via email during June. Make sure to type in your email correctly in this page's prompt. Make-ups for a student-missed lesson cannot be guaranteed but Mr. C will make every effort to at least try to do a make-up via Virtual Lesson on Teams.
Please understand that every effort will be made to schedule your child as close to the time of day you've requested. All scheduling is done in order in which it was registered, so the sooner you register, the better chance at getting close to your desired time frame.
Mr. Colo'n's summer email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please only use this email for questions pertaining to Summer Lessons.
Thank you! Stay safe and be well!
