Weekly Section Rehearsals and full band rehearsals  

We will be having a short section rehearsal right after school each week. This is due to the band being split into two classes.  Sectionals will only last until 3:45. Woodwind players meet on Mondays, Brass on Tuesdays, and Percussion and majorettes on Wednesdays.  Please make arrangements to pick up your child, or a ride home with someone else.  Thursday night practices are 6:30-8:30.

REMEMBER, STUDENTS CAN NOT STAY ON CAMPUS ON THURSDAYS BETWEEN 3:05 AND 6 PM. AND ON HOME GAME DAYS, THE ROOM WILL OPEN 30 MINUTES BEFORE CALL TIME.  AWAY GAME DAYS, THE ROOM WILL BE OPEN, BUT STUDENTS HAVE TO STAY IN THE BAND ROOM AND CANNOT BE ALL OVER CAMPUS.


Flip Folders, lyres, reeds, etc  

Flip folders will be provided for the students

Students are responsible for having their instrumtent in good working order BEFORE the first day of camp

Students are responsible for having reeds, valve oil, trombone slide lubricant, and a lyre (the thing that holds the flip folders)

We will not provide reeds or other accessories. that is your responsibility.

MARCHING BAND 2017-18

 

Things you should know:

 

1.  To be in the band, you MUST be scheduled for the class.

 

2.  There will be NO sharing of band class with other classes. This means

      if you want to be in band, and have a conflict with another class,  say,

      Basket Weaving 101, then you will have to choose which one you want to

      be in. No exceptions.

 

3.   You are required to be at the following:  any percussion or majorette camp,

      both weeks of summer band camp, and Thursday night rehearsals. An occasional

      missed day is reviewed on a case by case basis.  Entire weeks are not acceptable. If you

      are involved with work or other activities that will prevent this, you need to

      re-assess your priorities, and go with whatever you want to do.  We cannot

      make a show work unless you are here. “Swiss Cheese” rehearsals (full of

      holes) are futile, unproductive, and unfair to those who are here all the time.

 

4.   ALL FEES MUST BE PAID ON OR BEFORE THE FIRST DAY OF FULL

       BAND CAMP.
