Bunker Hill Fiddling Lions 2019-20

For over 35 years, SBISD has offered elementary string instruction, allowing children to learn Suzuki violin at school, with friends, at below-market cost. These children develop a skill set that includes sensitivity, discipline, attention to detail, time management, and team work — shaping a potentially productive mind set. Orchestras in every school at the secondary level offer a far more elaborate group experience musically and socially.

Focus at BHE seeks to nurture responsible group membership, development of a sound technical foundation, a love of making music with friends, and fun. Parents need to provide an instrument, selected materials, and organizational plans for effective home practice. Parents who arrange to observe recess lessons and/or after school classes are better equipped to assist their children at home. Parents who cannot observe instruction will make a plan with the teacher to know how to guide the child at home.

The fall semester will include several exciting performances in addition to our traditional Freaky Friday and Winter concert. Returning students will have a Pizza Play-In on August 20, in room 606, 3:00-5:00. The following day, new students will meet 5:30-6:30 in room 606 to learn more about the coming year.

***Enrollment forms are available in the front office and in room 606!
