The Band Rehearsals are on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 - 9:00pm
To be Determined
All rehearsals start promptly at 6:30 pm. Please plan to arrive at least 30 to 15 minutes prior to the 6:30 downbeat so you have time to pick up any new music and have time for your personal warm-up and music line-up.
Always bring your instrument, music, Pencil, as well as any mutes and other equipment (stand lights?) needed for rehearsals.
It is expected that each individual member learn their music on their own so that our rehearsals can focus on the important musical aspect within the band rather than dealing with individual notes and rhythms.
Your attendance and starting rehearsals on time is extremely important for us to prepare for our upcoming performances. However, sometimes things happen and we can't make a rehearsal or you are running late. Stuff happens! If you know you will be late or will need to mis, please try to notify us.
General Rehearsal Information:
As you know, “Rehearsals” are for refining the music as an ensemble with concentration on the Musically of Balance, Style, Phrasing, Interpretation, Intonation and Dynamics. Each individual player is responsible for playing and knowing their own part to the best of their ability so we can make the most out of our Tuesday nights together.
As most of you have realized, I am not one to simply run through music type director. It is important to me that we rehearse the difficult sections in order to bring up our level of musicality. Please do your part in keeping the talking to a minimum so that everyone can hear the instructions and information given, so we can all enjoy the exciting performance to come!
