Mr. Eric J. Landsperger
Hello Orchestra Students and Parents!
Welcome to the new school year. I am excited to get back to helping all of my orchestra students become better musicians. My goal is to make the orchestra program a fun and informative place for students to grow and create.
As you all are most certainly aware, all classes at CCHS will take place virtually while our district is in Plan C. Needless to say, this has presented some interesting challenges for the orchestra program. First and foremost I want to inform everyone that while we are operating in Plan C there will be no instruments distributed to students to take home. After giving this much consideration I decided that the challenges of instructing online the skills required to successfully perform the violin, viola, cello and double bass are so complex that it will be in everyone's best interest to wait until me are back in the classroom before assigning instruments to students. Regarding instrument rental fees for the semester, the $25 instrumental rental fee will be prorated according to when we enter Plan B, e.g. when students begin to attend class at CCHS one day a week. To put this in other words, if we enter Plan B at the beginning of Quarter 2 (the middle of the semester) the instrument rental fee for the semester will be half of $25 which is $12.50. The $10 class fee is still in effect for the entire semester. Fees can be paid online.
