After a week of teacher meetings at SSHS I am ready for the school year to begin: Bring it on! Band begins tomorrow with jazz band at 7am, wind ensemble at 8am, and so on.
Cougar Band is set for a great year of band. Things on my mind lately include visual ideas for contest field show, class atmosphere, leadership, and spring tour. Also, stuff to order like: pit mallet bags, cymbals, shoes, gloves, pep tunes, contest entry fees, tuner, and more.
Tuesday evening is a Band Booster meeting in the band room. I hope to have the band handbook ready to go for parent review. The handbook will have a schedule of ALL band events for 2009-2010 including solo & ensemble, festivals, concerts, and graduation.
With all that in mind, Bring it on! the Cougar Band is ready to roll.
