We, Montana! Audition/Enrollment Status

What’s YOUR thing? We have chorus, band, general music, etiquette, and skits. Register now!

So far, our numbers are lower than we have had reason to expect, so we’re guessing that there are still some parents either uncertain about their Fall schedules, or who haven’t gotten around to registering or scheduling auditions yet. So I thought I’d publish our current enrollment for your general information, and in hopes of prompting those who have yet to get signed up to do it sooner than later. Indeed, time is running short!

GENERAL MUSIC–for ages 6 to 10. Course capped at 30.
Mondays, 8:00 a.m. to 8:50 a.m.
September 9 through December 9, 2019

This course was expected to fill to capacity, so we’re not sure why enrollment is this light as of this late hour. (It is capped at 30.) This will function as a bit of a “feeder” class for our band and chorus programs, and is a great way to get your students started.

BEGINNING BAND–for ages 10 and up, including (beginning or experienced) parents.
Mondays, 9:00 a.m. to 10:15 a.m.
September 9 through December 9, 2019

This class was expected to be small, but we’re still open to new members who are playing at an intermediate (or higher) level. And we could use an experienced bass player if we can find one. Otherwise, we’ll just cover the bass part on a keyboard. Know anyone?

HOMESCHOOL CHORUS–for ages 9 and up, including parents. THERE WILL BE A PITCH-MATCHING AUDITION FOR CHORUS. (We believe we can build this chorus to 100 members or more. We currently have 31.)
Mondays, 12:10 p.m. to 1:40 p.m.
September 9 through December 9, 2019
This is a two-semester course, starting this Fall and ending in May 2020.New members may be added at any time with the director’s approval.
Course Details.

Currently Enrolled:32
32 have passed the audition, and about 6 are still working on those pitch-matching skills so they can pass it, too. We’ve been expecting to go over 50 this semester, based on interest already expressed. A few have signaled that they’re traveling, but we’re uncertain as to why we haven’t had more sign up already. Also, parents and post-school siblings are also encouraged to join.

ETIQUETTE–for ages 10-18.
Mondays, 1:50 p.m. to 2:35 p.m.
September 9 through December 2, 2019.
(This is a 12-week course, and will not meet on December 9, as do the rest of our courses.)
This course meets only in the Fall semester.

Currently Enrolled: 13
We don’t know for sure, but we think that we have several stragglers who intend to enroll, but have not yet done it. This is going to be a super-great course, and it’s capped at 30.

SKITS WORKSHOP–For ages 12 to 18.
By audition only. Capped at 16 members.
Mondays, 2:50 p.m. to 4:05 p.m.
September 9 through December 9, 2019
This course meets only in the Fall semester.

Currently Enrolled: 7
As far as we have been informed, we only have one more student intending to audition. The course as capped at 16, but will only take as many as seem qualified for the level of work we plan on doing. Eight is enough to keep the class going, but surely there are at least a couple more talented souls out there who probably “should” be in this class!
