Hello All DHS Band Students and Families,
A quick reminder that this Friday in band class the students will be having a lecture on the Alexander Technique.  Bruce Oliver is a very talented lecturer and a miracle worker when it comes to healing musicians and teaching how to play at our top level without injury.  It should make for a wonderful lecture!
This event is jointly sponsored by DHS Band Boosters and DSOMO for all DHS instrumental musicians.
We hope you gain some thoughtful insight into keeping yourself healthy while playing.
