I just wanted to send out an update from the band room. We are full steam ahead for the October 18th concert, but a lot of work needs to happen for a successful concert.
All students should be bringing instruments home and practicing their individual parts at home. Remember, PRACTICE at home, and REHEARSE in the band room.
With that being said, we need to do a better job of following our classroom procedures. When the director (Myself or a guest director) is on the podium, you are not talking, not playing, and listening for directions. When the director raises the baton, ALL instruments go up and ready to play (even if you start with a rest).
The more effective the rehearsal procedures are followed, the better we can get as a band!
Chair placements should be available on Tuesday, Sept. 25th, chair challenges will be announced and explained in another week.
