5th Grade Band
Dear 5th Grade Parents/Guardians:
Welcome to the 2017-18 school year! We are excited to share that due to the continuous support of funding through the Redondo Beach Educational Foundation (RBEF) we have two teachers for our band program!
Throughout the last few years, Mrs. Yvonne Zoetewey has done a fabulous job of running our 5th grade band program and the program has grown successfully and tremendously! Because of this growth, we are pleased to announce that she will be partnering up with Mr. Eric Buchen. Mr. Buchen comes to us with many years of music experience as the former band director and band teacher at Adams Middle School and some of the feeder elementary schools. Mr. Buchen and Ms. Zoetewey will be a traveling team, visiting school sites together and providing high quality instrumental music instruction to our 5th grade students. This partnership, will allow them to focus on specific instruments in smaller groups, giving students more focused attention and instruction.
Should you have any questions regarding the 5th grade band program, please contact your school’s principal. Have a great school year!
