By this Monday, August 17, everyone must have a thin band binder with page protectors for your music. It is essential for practicing outdoors.
Tuesday, August 4
WEEKLY SECTIONALS – all sections of woodwind and brass players will have a required 45 minute sectional each week through August and September. Your sectional must be completed each week before Friday. Any student not in attendance at their sectional will be required to meet with Mr. Scherer on Friday at 2:00. This will be mandatory and cannot be made up. All sections must meet separately, meaning saxes must meet as tenors and altos apart, low brass must meet as tubas, baritones and trombones separately. You may meet at the same time and place, but must work separately.
