After school practices for ratings:

(8th grade selected members and HS students only)
these will occur Tuesday and Thursday each week during January.  They are expected just like a marching band rehearsal.  Practices will be until 4:30.  Quicker the music is learned.  Less practices will be required.

6th grade parents:

Please make sure your student has what they need for class.  The book is required.  Reeds are required to be purchased as needed.  Students on brass instruments need valve oil.  Trombones need slide oil.  These are things that must be bought.
Students should also be practicing at least twice a week at home.  30 minutes each day.  Band is not instant gratification.  They must practice to be successful.
