Hello and welcome back to a fantastic new year in orchestra at Daniell Middle School! Please note the following important dates:


Uniforms can’t be ordered without sizing information, so please measure your child and submit an order form online asap. For the gentlemen tuxedo shirt, sleeve length DOES matter, so please refer to the sizing chart to assist you. Sleeve length goes by height. Place your order below!

Friday, August 9th : Uniform payment #1 of $30 is due. 8th graders who still fit in their uniform from last year do not need to purchase another. The complete payment of $60 may be made if desired. Cash, check and online through my payments plus are all acceptable payment options.

8th Grade Disney Trip!

Friday, August 9th: Disney Interest Survey Due! Please fill out this survey even if you don’t intend to go so that we have accurate numbers to estimate with.

Playing Tests

Playing tests for 8th and 7th grade will begin THIS WEEK! It is extremely important that students have the book that correlates to their respective class.

8th Grade: #5 due 8/11 by midnight at the latest (get it done earlier than sunday!!!) (music in folder on student bulletin board)

7th Grade: #6 Go Tell Aunt Rhody due 8/11 by midnight at the latest (get it done earlier than sunday!!!)


In order to complete playing tests, students AND parents must have active cuttime.net accounts. Frequently students have accidentally been creating teacher accounts, making it seem as though Daniell had several different orchestra accounts. To create an account, you must do so here: https://cuttime.net/createProfile.cfm

Cut time is new this year, so we’ll have some speed bumps along the way. Please do your best to promptly complete tasks so that we can address problems with plenty of time. I will not be responding to emails on Sunday evenings, so if you need account help, you will need to email me before the weekend. Now is a great time for test runs with uploading audio files to your account.
