Dear Orchestra Parents and Students,

I am extremely honored and excited to be the next orchestra director at Alpharetta High School!  It was great meeting some of you at the Spring Concert and at the middle schools. I am looking forward to getting to know all of you better and working with you to make some wonderful music next school year. I want to carry on Mr. Fisher’s incredible legacy and continue building the tradition of excellence that will help the AHS Orchestra propel forward.

You will soon learn that I am a extremely passionate teacher and that I care deeply for each of my students. I work hard to create learning experiences that are educational, motivational, and inspirational. My goal is to always help make you the best you can be as an independent musician, orchestral player, and as a person. We can all learn so much through music!

Please mark your calendars for our “Bach to School” Mini-Camp! It will be held Wednesday, August 3 & Thursday, August 4 – 6:00-9:00 P.M. in the AHS Orchestra room and auditorium. Please note: The mini-camp is a required event for all orchestra students but, trust me, you won’t want to miss it! The leadership team will be working this summer to make the mini-cam an educational and fun experience so we can all get to know each other socially and musically.

I hope you all have a relaxing summer (but don’t forget to practice!), and be sure to revisit the orchestra website regularly for updates. Also, please follow/subscribe to us on FacebookTwitterYouTube, and Instagram.  This way you’ll never miss out on all the important and fun information that will be coming your way!

In addition, the tentative orchestra calendar for 2016-2017 is now available online, so please mark the important dates and/or subscribe to the Google Calendar.  Please let me know if you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions.  I am looking forward to getting started!

Sincerely,

Dr. Laux
