DUTIES OF THE BAND MEMBERS

Be on time to all rehearsals and performances.  Early is on time!

Upon entering the band room, get your instrument, and go directly to your seat.

When the director steps on the podium or asks for your attention, all talking should cease.

Come to the rehearsal with a good attitude. Leave the bad one out the door!

Make an effort to improve on a daily basis, and establish a good practice routine.

At the end of rehearsal, put all material in the proper place.

Maintain a strong academic standing in all of your other courses.

Become responsible for and assume responsibility for your own actions.  Admit when wrong!

Have proper respect for yourself and others.

Read and play music with insight--have musical expectations.

 

THE IMPORTANCE OF ATTITUDE

     The greatest single factor that will determine the success of any individual or organization is attitude.  The kind of person you are is an individual choice, and how you feel about someting is one of the few actual independent choices you have in life.  It takes intense dedication to reach goals.  The band can do much for you.  Make the most of it in every rehearsal and performance.

 

THE IMPORTANCE OF DISCIPLINE

     Because of the nature of the organization, band discipline must be strict!  Band students and parents must believe in the ideals, principles, and philosophy of the organization.  Each member must always be aware of good behavior and think for themselves.  Any member who discredits the organization by their conduct or action in band shall be subject to dismissal from the band program or may lose a privilege within the program.
