Congratulations All-Region Band Members

The following students were selected as members of the region 24 Middle School All-Region band today.  This is a major achievement. For example there are approximately 700 Bb clarinet players eligible for this competition.  54 are selected as members of the band, so if you are selected than you are in the top 7.5% of players on your instrument and you beat 650 other competitors.  Every instrument involved has similar numbers and percentages.  Ms. Flanagan and I are both super proud of your achievement.

Katelyn L. - Flute
Ashlyn W. - Clarinet

School Starts Monday!!!!

Here we are at the start of school.  Honors and Symphonic Band students I do have a couple of things for the first day of school

  • You do not need your band binder on the first day of school.  We will be building your new 2013-3014 band binder in class.  This will include getting you objective sheet, scales, all-region music and other fun stuff.
  • Honors Band will have a practice marathon on Friday of the first week of school from 4:30-6:30.  This will really get you going in a positive way on your all-region music.  
  • We will be performing all together as one super band for the school wide pep rally on Friday.
  • If you are still playing on the same reeds from last year's Spring Concert it is time for some new ones.  
  • If your schedule is weird on Monday don't freak out.  We can easily solve any problems you have.  No one has been kicked out or moved around.  If it is missing Jazz Band and you want in it is never too late for that awesome experience.  Just come talk to Mr. Cooley Monday morning.
We can't wait to see you guys.
