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 Thursdays before school from 8:15-9:05 am, starting on Thursday, February 2nd, 2017. There will be a club fee of $75, which includes a t-shirt.  Space is limited so please contact Dixie Mitchell if your child is interested in this club ddmitchell1@fcps.edu

Please call the office at 703-937-1504 or email Heather Hazard at hehazard@fcps.edu for scholarship opportunities..

If for any reason your child arrives after 8:30 a.m., he or she MUST sign in at the front 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:

  • Guitar Center – 11051 Lee Hwy, Fairfax, VA (703) 934-8838
  • Music and Arts-2916 Chain Bridge Rd, Oakton, VA 22124 (703) 281-040drums-vector

Our concert this year is combined with the spring chorus concert on Thursday, June 15, at 2:30pm and 6:30 pm (Pix & Stix members need to arrive at 5:30 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 Wednesday, June 14 at 8:15 a.m.

*We are looking for any parents who would be willing to volunteer their time to help out Thursday 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. Dixie Mitchell @ ddmitchell1@fcps.edu
