Alternative Guitar Club Opportunity/Guitar Drop Off

  • Subject: Alternative Guitar Club Opportunity/Guitar Drop Off

    Due to the closing of schools this spring, the BPS Guitar Club was only able to meet one time.

    With families transitioning into the new normal of distance learning and possibly also working from home, I also wanted to respect your family's time and not put one more thing on your plate with the option of a virtual guitar club.

    However, with the school year coming to a close I would like to give current BPS 4th and 5th grade families the opportunity to learn some guitar at home this summer and will be putting together self-paced modules that you and your student can go through at home over the month of June. (I'll make sure that you get to the three most important chords for campfire sing-a-longs so you are ready for lake season!) Again this is open to all BPS families. The only thing you would need is computer access and a guitar. (unfortunately we will be unable to provide guitars to families who do not currently have access to one)

    If your student participated in the one guitar club meeting this last March and you took one of the BPS Guitar Club owned guitars home, you can hang on to it through the month of June to go through the self-paced modules and then I will let you know a date that you can return it to Wachter Middle School. Or, if you would rather simply return the guitar, you can drop it off at Wachter Middle School this Monday - Wednesday between 8am and 1pm using the 7th street bus stop on the west side of the school.

    If you would like to go through the self-paced guitar club modules this June, please enter your email on this form and a link to the material will be sent by the end of May.

    If you have questions, please email David Augustadt.
