Band Handbook

The "Blue Book" has everything else that is needed to know about the program. Grading, Game Day prep and more are here!

Attendance

Remember that attendance is required for everything on the calendar (just look for the red "R". Being absent for any amount of time could result in not performing on the field due to lack of knowledge and confidence in the drill and music.

Preparing for the next game

If you haven't realized, students MUST practice at home to memorize their music. With the 3rd quarter checks and our memorized on-field performances, students need to make time during the day to practice. It is their homework!

3rd quarter due dates

Remember to earn your 3rd quarter you must perform your part from memory in front of a Director. Here are some upcoming due dates

  • Game 4: Pirates of the Caribbean
  • Game 5: Dude Looks Like a Lady
  • Game 6: Dream on
  • Game 7: Walk this Way
  • and more to come

Why are we do earn our 3rd quarter?

We have over 100 people in band. We need to make sure every member knows their part and is equally contributing to this band. Sometimes students fake play and are not participating in the overall sound of the ensemble. This is completely unacceptable. Student are required to perform each piece in front of a Director from memory. By ensuring that every student is properly contributing, our ensemble will only sound better than before. This is what we want. We must raise the expectations.

Check out our AMAZING website!

Our website has gone through some MAJOR upgrades! Check it often!

Concert Date Change!

We will no longer have a concert in March this year. Because, we are performing at Cleveland State University with the CSU Concert Bands! The performance will be February 21 in Waetjen Auditorium!
