Marshall Road is excited to offer a guitar and drum club again this year for 5th and 6th graders of any skill level. Pix and Stix will be held in the music room every other Monday before school from 8:20-9:10 am, starting on Monday, October 16, 2017.  Beginning in March, Pix and Stix will meet every Monday to prepare for the Spring Concert.  Our concert this year is combined with the spring Chorus concert and scheduled for Thursday, June 7 at 6:30 pm (Pix & Stix members need to arrive at 6 p.m.). Students can participate in Chorus and Pix and Stix during the concert if they belong to both ensembles. Make sure you can commit to the club and concert date before joining. Our last day will be our dress rehearsal on Monday, June 4 at 8:20 a.m.

Please contact Heather Hazard at hehazard@fcps.edu by September 26 for scholarship opportunities.

If for any reason your child arrives after 8:30 am, he or she MUST sign in at the school office before coming to the club. Please also note that the club will not meet if school is canceled for any reason. Drummers must bring their own set of drum sticks, clearly labeled with their first and last name and guitar players must bring their own guitar. Here are some local music stores to consider:

*We are looking for any parents who would be willing to volunteer their time to help out Monday mornings. You do not need to know how to play guitar or drums, just help supervise and you can learn to play too! Tons of fun! Please email Ms. Mazur at ddmazur@fcps.edu.
