Hello to our 2019 band seniors, section leaders and class representatives!
“It’s beginning to feel a lot like BAND CAMP!” 100 degrees, sticky, hazy…ya gotta luv it!
It all starts MONDAY! GET LIT!
I will be at school at NOON on Monday, 7/22 if you want to come in early and begin copying music for your section.
NEW for WIND SECTION-LEADERS: At 2:00pm, Dr. Parker and John will lead a session on teaching marching basics. Many upperclassmen have suggested such a meeting in the past and I think it will be a great idea to get everyone on the same page and refresh good teaching methods.
At 3:00pm we will have our first LEADERSHIP MEETING. It would be a good idea to bring a notebook and perhaps a folder to store handouts. In addition to discussing leadership and good teaching practice, we’ll be covering the activities that occur in pre-camp and band camp. We’ll give you a break between 5:00-6:15pm to catch dinner, and then it’s time for PRE-CAMP!
PRE-CAMP is 6:30-10:00pm Monday-Thursday. YOU will do the majority of teaching during this time so the afternoon sessions are very important as they will prepare you for this experience.
I am so excited to see all of you again and to get a brand new season started! Our goal–as always–will be to make this year the BEST YEAR we have enjoyed at Athens Drive. Whether the weather is cold or HOT, you’re gonna luv this year A LOT! 😊
See ya soon!
