Weekly Update (2/14- 2/19)

This is your weekly MUSIC DEPARTMENT update!

Hello Folks!


This week is HUGE! We have Jazz MPA on Thursday, and we're hosting Solo and Ensemble on Friday and Saturday! We desperately need more adults to sign up for shifts, so I encourage band parents (YES, YOU! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ) to sign up to help us out so that we can put on an amazing event. To sign up, follow this link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/409054DA5AF2EA2FA7-solo1


Students can continue to sign up to help here (remember, to earn credit, you must sign up for and attend 3 shifts and these qualify for Volunteer Hours): https://www.signupgenius.com/go/409054DA5AF2EA2FA7-solo


We have a visitor on Tuesday during class, so get ready!

Things to Note ๐ŸŽต:



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.


Band Booster Scholarships


Now available are the Band Booster Scholarship Applications! One Scholarship is for any student in our Band Program who would like to go to a summer music camp! All Drum Major Candidates are required to apply for this option, but all my students are encouraged to apply. The money from this helps to pay for a trip to a summer music camp of your choosing. Sumer Music Camps are a life- changing experience where you can learn how to become a strong musician and make great friends with students from across the state. For more info about the scholarship, click the link below.
