6th Grade Band

Welcome to the 6th grade Band:

This is an exciting experience for the 6th graders and I love helping the new Central students continue with their musical education. 

Please contact me anytime if you feel there is a concern.  

The children are learning how to follow the rotating schedule. They must practice at home and bring their instrument to school for a lesson each Friday and a band rehearsal each Wednesday. I will gently guide them through these procedures. They have a shelf for their instrument in the band room. 


At home they should be practicing two of the eight band songs. They must tap their foot, read music and progress through the weekly lesson book assignments.

It is imperative that they attend the weekly lesson prepared with instrument and folder. The monthly calendar is a place for their grades, comments from the teacher or parent, practice record and important news and events.

The 6th grade band will be performing for the Community Center Santa Arrival and also a nursing home.

I can be reached by email at eshanagher   @  longhill.org  or by cell 908.432.5990. I will be able to return your call when I am free to do so.

I'm looking forward to working with your musician.
