    Dear Norterra Canyon Parents,

    Thank you for your support, and particularly for encouraging your child to begin and/or continue their study of instrumental music. This investment of time, effort and energy will surely yield lifelong dividends.

    Throughout the year, you will be receiving communiques from our Band Department concerning upcoming concerts, festivals, and other pertinent information. 

    Music is a vital component in the positive growth of every child. Based upon extended research studies, we know that the very process of learning and performing music develops the artistic mind and cultivates the creative potential in all young people. For this reason, continued membership in our Band family is strongly encouraged.

    It is a privilege to have your child as a valued musician in our organization. Thank you for your support of the Band Program at Norterra Canyon. You play an important role in everything we will be able to achieve. Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!

    Respectfully,

    Danielle Belliveau
