WHAT IS BAND?
A Band is a group of woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments playing all together in a large group. We will begin the year by playing tunes by ear, and our first concert will be a showcase of those. In February, we will start reading traditional band charts; we'll perform those in the Spring.
WHEN DOES BAND MEET?
Rehearsals will take place during the after-school activity period; 3:05-3:40pm. Students can take a late bus home or be picked up by a parent. If you are picking up your child, you must sign them out in the office.
Mendon Center: Every Wednesday, starting November 2nd, 2022n.
Rehearsals: It is important that ALL band members attend our weekly rehearsals. If you wish to be part of our team, then it is important to be a reliable, responsible, active team member. If you have a doctor's appointment and you need to miss a band rehearsal, please notify Mrs. Regan via email. No-shows are not permitted.
Concerts: Concert attendance is also required. Please mark the dates on your family calendar and be proactive with any conflicts that might occur, particularly with spring sports.
