It's hard to believe that the school year is coming to an end! This time of year allows us to reflect on the great progress our students have made. While we believe performance is a key part of music education, we realize the essence of our program does not lie solely in the fundamentals of music.  It lies in the development of artistic appreciation, self-worth, communication skills, and musical expression.
Our students are excelling in academic classes and taking leadership roles in their school and communities. We admire their extended study of music and higher-level achievement. All of these achievements would not be possible without your continued support. We genuinely thank you for the privilege of teaching your students and send you warm wishes during the summer months.
Best regards,

Summer Lessons
Looking for a musical summer activity for your student? Sign-up for summer lessons! All of our teachers make arrangements to offer some sort of summer band activity for their students. 
Private lessons are a wonderful opportunity for your child to get one-on-one attention and instrument specific instruction. This personal approach allows students to have a customized lesson, be challenged in new ways, and learn advanced techniques. Band camps can also provide a unique opportunity to better know their peers and experience a high-school setting band experience. 
You will be receiving information from your child's band director in the coming weeks with details about summer band activities. Please consider having your child participate in a summer music program to keep the momentum of the past school year going strong.
End of the Year Billing
The last tuition payment for the 2018-2019 school year will be billed on May 15th. This will be the ninth and final tuition installment. If you are renting your instrument and your child will be continuing in band next year, do not return your instrument. Even if your child is unsure about returning, it is still in your best interest continuing renting until a final decision has been made. Once an instrument is turned in, all equity from the rental of the instrument will be lost.
Instrument Buyout Sale!
If you are sure your child wants to continue in band consider finalizing the purchase of your instrument now. We are currently offering a 20% discount off your balance until the end of June. This is a great opportunity to buyout your instrument and eliminate your bills over the summer. If your child will not be continuing in band next year and you wish to return your instrument, students can give the instrument to the band teacher on the last day of band class. 
All of our renters will be receiving a detailed letter explaining your options with the next bill. Please consider your options carefully. If you have any questions or concerns, please call us at 847-805-1800. 
Honors Band
Our annual Honors Band Festival was held on Saturday, April 27th, 2019 at Elmhurst Christian Reformed Church. It was a wonderful day of music, rehearsals, music, new friendships, and more music. Thanks again to everyone who participated! Parents, we thank you for bringing your child to extra rehearsals and for commuting to Elmhurst. We hope you found this experience enriching and a peek into what high school band will be like. Finally, a special thanks to our conductors for leading our students and to all directors for making this day a huge success.  Pictures will soon be posted on our website. 
A Hearty Thanks! 
We at MES would like to take this time to say thank you for a wonderful year. We are grateful for the opportunity to work with such fine young musicians year after year.  Your continued support allows us to enrich the lives of more students with the gift of music.  To our 8th grade families we wish you and your student continued success in all that is to come.  To all, we hope you enjoy a restful summer and look forward to working with your students next year.
