Weekly Update (4/5- 4/9)

This is your weekly MUSIC DEPARTMENT update!

Hello Folks!


Happy Easter!





Slight modification from last week- the Drum Major Clinic scheduled on April 15th is going to be cancelled for NFHB which is coming up quick. (April 15th is the first rehearsal, and April 16th is the day- long rehearsal and performance!)


Irish Tune from County Derry Rehearsal is on Tuesday! This is for both Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band combined. Percussion is not needed unless they’d like to come. (The parts for percussion are so few—most of you will be covering flute/ oboe parts).


Parents and Students may now register for the Music Department Band Banquet which is on Saturday, May 8th at 6:00pm! You can do this on https://www.bakercountybands.org/events. Please be sure to include all the people planning to attend—we want to have as accurate a number as possible to avoid overspending on food. Thanks!


Band Parents/ Students—please make sure to set aside time to help at the Baker County Band Boosters Spring Car Wash. It is on Saturday, April 17th at 9am. For more information, feel free to reach out to elena.lowther@bakerk12.org.


All Band Dues Statements have gone out! If your student did not receive a statement, their balance is clear. As mentioned on the latter, mistakes do happen. Please do not be afraid to speak with me if this is the case. We can make it right! :)

Cut Time

Each of you should have received an email from “Cut Time”, inviting you to register. PLEASE DO THIS. (If you didn’t get the email, check your “Spam” Folder).


On April 14th, Charms will be defunct for us, and Cut Time will be our band’s new organizational program. If you choose not to register, you will not receive emails from me anymore (and that would be really really bad! ☹)


There are both STUDENT and PARENT accounts and they should be linked. When you register, please make sure that the information that has been put in is correct (especially your Home/ Mobile Phone and email!) Students, the email put in currently is your school email. Please change it to your MOST CHECKED email (so if you check your personal email more, you need to set it to that.)


I will be updating you more on Cut Time as we move on, but I think Cut Time will be a lot more user friendly. 😊


Leadership Requirements

If applying for a position on Student Staff, please review this document. This should concisely state all expectations for Student Staff applications over the coming few weeks. Expectations grow as the competition gets more tense, and because we are looking to downsize, a lot of positions are going to be highly competitive. For the Colorguard and Majorette teams, it is important to note that there may be other leadership opportunities made available aside from Captain. More information will come about this later.

Best Wishes! If there are any questions, please feel free to email me at myles.moore@bakerk12.org.


Band Calendar Updated

Leadership, Rookie, and Band Camps have been added to the Band Calendar! Check June and July. You may notice that Rookie and Leadership Camp are separated from Full Band Camp. This is because I will (finally) be finishing my Master’s degree at FSU this summer. This arrangement was the only way I’d be able to fully commit my time to both my Degree Program and my Students.


Thank you for understanding!
