.....Aaaaaaand We're Back!
Welcome back, everyone! I trust you lived your holiday break to the fullest!
Entering basketball band season, we will spend the majority of the month getting things polished. As a part of that polishing, I am writing and re-writing all of our charts to better fit the current state of the ensemble. Making the music fit the skills and abilities of OUR students, rather than using some cookie-cutter chart from a major publisher. Even taking the pieces from the the 4x6" flip folders to full 8 1/2 x 11" sheets. Taking about 5-6 hours per song this is a large undertaking, but I truly believe this will take our band to the next level. A level that, when compared to bands around the state, our students and community will have a lot of pride in.
Cheers to a new season!
