Updated: Jan 17

This is your weekly MUSIC DEPARTMENT update!

Hello Folks!


Happy New Year!

As I explained to the students on Thursday, we are hopping in with very little time to breathe. February is a lot like October. We’ll have a lot of stuff to do. This said, I need parents to understand that Late January to the first week of March will be cut out for band. Please do not schedule anything over these days (especially if your child is in Jazz Band, Wind Ensemble, or Percussion) because the performances and rehearsals happening over the next 7-8 weeks will be EXTREMELY crucial if we want our shot at making some Baker County History.


This week, I will be out of office starting Wednesday to travel down to Tampa for the Florida Music Educators Association Convention. As a result, there will be work for my classes to complete before I return. Please bring your instruments and prepare to work diligently, so that when I return we will be in great shape to begin chopping away at our music.

Things to Note 🎵:

Solo and Ensemble Music


Wind Ensemble Students, if you are still missing Solo and Ensemble Music, please shoot me an email IMMEDIATELY so I can work on getting your stuff situated asap.


Music Ensemble Auditions


Music Ensemble Auditions which will determine placement in Wind Ensemble for the 2022-23 School Year will begin March 28th. The number of musicians in Wind Ensemble will stay about the same and most students entering the band next year will be placed in Symphonic Band as a result. This is good news for both ensembles! Wind Ensemble will be very competitive, and Symphonic Band will increase dramatically in size! Requirements for this audition will come out in February, but students can prepare by working on the following Scales in 2 octaves All State Pattern: G, C, F Bb, Eb, Ab, Db.
