Quote of the Week:
“Music is a language that doesn’t speak in particular words. It speaks in emotions, and if it’s in the bones, it’s in the bones.” ― Keith Richards
One of the highlights this semester is the “MidKnight Madness” event on February 21! We need lots of parents to join in on the madness!! Please click the link to sign up!
Volunteer HERE for MidKnight Madness!
UPDATE-DATE CHANGE-MARK YOUR FAMILY CALENDARS!
Six Flags publishes their Season dates late in the calendar-year and they have rented out the park to a company on the day that we planned on going! The 7th/8th grade trip is NOT on Friday, April 24th to Six Flags. The 7th/8th grade trip IS on SATURDAY, APRIL 25TH to SCHLITTERBAHN in NEW BRAUNFELS.
Students have access to the professional recordings of our UIL music so they can begin listening to them daily. This helps them to create an ‘ideal’ image so they can balance and blend their parts more efficiently. They can access them on their Google Classroom account.
Students must pass off their “Music Mastery” assignment by February 19th to be eligible to participate in the “pfun” part of MidKnight Madness. It is recommended that they pass them off on Charms (www.charmsoffice.com school code: ‘klmsband’ password: id, unless changed). They may stay after school this Wednesday(1/22/20), or Thursday(1/23/20), if they would like to pass off some of their “music mastery” assignments with a director (they are also welcome to record this assignment on a voice memo app and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org )
The GattiTown lock-in has been rescheduled for March 27th (same times).
Students will need their tuner/metronome every day in class!
REHEARSALS, PERFORMANCES, AND UIL “OH MY!”
Please watch dates for rehearsals and performances. It is VERY important that ALL students attend ALL rehearsals (as full band rehearsals are meant to help us learn balance, blend and intonation within sections and the full band). Below is a link to the band calendar that the students were given in August. Please try to avoid major orthodontic appointments close to performances!
