Hello Geisler Middle School Orchestra Members & Families!

Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year!  It’s going to be a great one!
For those of you who don’t already know me, I am Kelly Briski.  This is my 7th year at Geisler teaching 6th, 7th, & 8th grade orchestra.  I am enthusiastic about music and greatly enjoy these formative middle school years!  (Yay middle school!!)


6th Graders please read the “New This Year!!!” section about renting your instrument at the GMS Open House.

NEW THIS YEAR!!!  Orchestra Rental at Geisler Gets Going!!!!

From 10am to 2pm ONLY, Shar Music Company will be in the orchestra room for students who have yet to rent their instrument for the 2016-2017 school year.  6th Graders! If you haven’t rented your instrument yet, this is for you!  


Shar Music is the string instrument company with whom WL orchestras work.  They have excellent quality instruments for rent at a great price. When you rent with them you build equity to buying an instrument when your student is full-grown.  A Shar Representative comes to GMS weekly so when your students has needs such as an exchange because they have grown out of their current size, we deal with it at school and you don’t have to! :)   You can check out their website here:  www.sharmusic.com

It’s easy.  Bring your pencil and a smile. :)

I will be sending out the schedule for the first week as it approaches.
