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.

Woodwinds and REEDS
Woodwind musicians are required to have 4 working reeds at all times. Imagine reeds are like tires on a car. If you get a flat, would you really keep driving on it for another 1,000 miles? The same is true with reeds. If they are wavy, cracked, or chipped you need to replace it immediately.
Why 4 working reeds?
With the day to day weather and other factors, it is suggested to have 4 reeds (and you should either date, or letter them...or both!). Why? on some days reed "A" may not work or sound as good as reed "B". Then the next day reed "A" works great again. This happens with woodwinds. You always have options to create your best sound.
