Some "stuff to know":
Band classes are focusing on fundamental skills development and reading music for the Fall Concert. All kids should have functional instruments, folders and music, and a place to store their instruments. Please see a band director if there are additional needs.
On Fridays, we will play "fun music". This means playing any and all music that we will need for pep rallies (all students play), special events at school (Sept 11th ceremony, etc), and requested community performances (for local businesses or organizations).
We have started bringing in section coaches to work with different groups of students during class periods. We also have a bassoon teacher who wants to run bassoon choir and rehearsals on select Friday mornings at 7:15 a.m. The first session is Friday Aug. 12th. They will meet approximately twice per month.
Competition Marching Band is on its regular schedule and learning new material at every rehearsal.
Friday Night Band had its first rehearsal and will learn the show over the next 3 rehearsals.
District Honor Band and All State Band audition signups will be open starting Monday Aug 15th.
PLEASE review the band calendar regularly. It will be updated as we get information about upcoming competitions, performances, etc. Read the emails from PBPA, attend the meetings, and keep informed!
With constant revisions to campus access due to construction, we will have to be flexible and cooperative. Please be patient...this is out of our control.
