Parent Volunteers Needed:
2018 Band & Auxiliary Event List: An event list of all remaining 2018 rehearsals and performances has been attached to this email. All students must turn in the attached commitment form to confirm that the information has been provided. Commitment forms are due by Friday, January 5th.
All band students are expected to bring their instruments to class/rehearsal in good working order. If a student’s instrument breaks, it is their responsibility to contact Cadence Music or Christman Music to make arrangements to get it fixed and have a loaner instrument so they can continue to practice. Students are responsible for covering the repair cost of the personal instruments. Students playing on school owned instruments, who have paid the $50 instrument rental fee will not be responsible for covering the repair charge.
Reminders for all auxiliary students:
Auxiliary students are expected to “dress-out” every day in class. “Dressing out” is part of each student’s daily participation grade. Students who do not dress out in class will be put on probation from upcoming performances.
All auxiliary students are required to perform a solo in class by February 1st. Students are encouraged to perform these solos at MPA, but it is not required. This activity will count as a performance test grade. Students who perform their solos at MPA will qualify to audition for an officer position in the 2018-2019 school year.
