Thanks to everyone that was able to attend yesterday! It was exciting to get back to doing musical things and we're very excited to get back into the swing of things this fall with you after getting just a taste yesterday!
New members, nice job! We were impressed with how great the band sounded after a year and a half of covid and our first time sight reading together! If you need any help whatsoever please reach out to someone. It is normal to feel a little rusty after the first meeting and especially coming out of covid. We're all in this together and want to build each other up! Parents, it is normal for your student to feel nervous about marching band in the beginning, send them back to us in the fall, we'll take good care of them.
Hopefully most people were able to meet their section leaders and other returning members of their section! Section leaders will be reaching out soon about potential options for sectionals over the summer as well as to see how everyone is doing and help answer any questions you may have.
Please reach out to myself and Mr. Ver Voort if you still need an instrument and we will help take care of you. If you need any music over the summer, please see our BAND app, or reach out to a section leader. And keep an eye out over the summer for email updates and posts in the app to keep you updated!
Thanks for a great sight reading session today everyone!
