In band, we have more projects upcoming. Students should be spending time outside of class working on materials for these playing assignments. We have a limited number of lunch period and AO passes...they can even practice here at school!
Our Fall Concert will be here before you know it (check the September calendar). Students should have either ordered a concert dress (ladies) or been fitted into a tuxedo and ordered/shopped for a tux shirt/bow tie/cummerbund package (gentlemen). They will also need black dress shoes (no sneakers or flip-flops!) We also want to see the theater PACKED with parents for this concert. We are one of th efew high school bands who prepare a full concert during marching band season...and we want you to see and hear our groups as they play together for the first time this year.
We are also encouraging signups for private lessons through our Conservatory program. Links are on this website and can get you in contact and started on lessons within a week or two. This is THE fastest way to improve skills and progress into higher level bands and/or honors groups.
