Hello Band Fam!

THANK YOU to everyone who has visited our new Band Store and placed orders! We'll be making some deliveries today, see you soon!

If you haven't had an opportunity to order your Luminarias and Poinsettias, head on over and order some today!

I do hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend. Good luck to all of our students in this final push for this semester. Hang in there!


And now, a word from Mr. Dubbs!

Parents and Students,

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving holiday with friends and family. It was great to have a few days to relax and get away from school.

Many thanks to our boosters for setting up the online spirit wear store on the band website. Please support the band and school with purchasing some items for the holidays. You can never have too much eagle attire.

Please take note of the following that applies to you...

Solo and Ensemble:

Those students who are submitting recordings for solo and ensemble must have these in by 2:00PM this Thursday, December 3, at the latest. Please let me know if the solo is in SmartMusic. If it is not, I need a PDF of the music, in addition to the recording, sent to me as well. Again, these are audio recordings, not video. They will be sent off for adjudication. Please see me during office hours this Monday if you have any questions.

All-State Students:

Music for students who made Concert All-State is now available at Musicality. Please contact them for hours, the cost of the music, and how it can be picked up. Their number is 889-2735. They are located at 6201 Pan American West Freeway NE Suite C 87109.

Jazz All-State Band 2 music is also available at Musicality. Jazz All-State Band 1 and Band 3 will be emailed to me and I will forward it to students.

We have 3 weeks left of school in the semester, which includes finals week. Please do all you can to get assignments in and finish strong this semester. Our zero hour schedule this week is as follows:

Monday: All students will meet. Our guest will be Mr. Neil Bell, former band director and currently practicing law in Santa Fe.

Tuesday: Percussion students

Wednesday: Color Guard students will meet with May.

Thursday: Brass students. Guests will be Joe Strohl (instrument repair technician in Arlington, TX) and Kevin Hobart (instrument repair technician in Natchitoches, LA).

Friday: Woodwind students. Joe Strohl and Kevin Hobart will be meeting with us again to discuss woodwind repair issues.
