•   Here is a copy of my band policy, which is for Whitman. The policy is the same for all of my schools.  The exact concert date for each school can be found on the Concert Dates page on my website.
     

    Dear Parents,

                I am excited that your child has chosen to participate in the band program at Whitman.  Your child will receive a lesson every Wednesday as well as attend band rehearsal on the same day.  Your child’s lesson time every Wednesday will be held at a different time each week so that students are not out of class at the same time each week.  We will be preparing for our Spring Concert, which is Tuesday March 20th at the Investor Bank PAC at 7:00 pm.  The daytime concert is Tuesday March 20th at Whitman.

     

    Lesson and Band requirements

     

    Ø  Bring instrument, lesson book, and music to all lessons and band rehearsals.

     

    Ø  Pass the Band Ensemble Readiness Benchmark.

     

    Ø  Perform in daytime assembly:   Tuesday March 20th.

     

    o   If a student does not have their instrument for the daytime assembly, they will not be permitted to perform at the evening concert.

     

    o   If a student is not able to perform the evening concert, they will not be permitted to perform at the assembly.

     

    Ø  Perform in evening concert at the Investor Bank PAC: Tuesday March 20th.

     

    Ø  Students that forget to bring their instrument to lessons and band rehearsals 5 or more times throughout the year prior to the concert will not be permitted to perform in either daytime or evening performances.

     

                         Students that forget to bring their instrument to lessons and band rehearsals 5 or more times throughout the year will not 

                            receive a band certificate.

    Ø  Students who meet the requirements: attend lessons and perform in the day and  evening concert, will receive a band certificate at the award assembly in June.
