All band members are required to come to rehearsals on time with their music and their instruments.
If students need to miss a pull-out rehearsal or an after school practice they must let Mrs. Comerford know ahead of time.
All band members are expected to remain in the band program until the end of the school year. This is a commitment from September to June. It is necessary for the good of the band that members remain until the end, but it also takes at least a full year of hard work to see the rewards of learning an instrument.
Students wishing to participate in Jazz Band must also be registered for Symphonic or Concert Band in order to ensure that musical leadership remains in our primary ensembles.
We invest a great amount of time designing a schedule that avoids repeated conflicts with classes and after school groups. However, sometimes such conflicts are unavoidable.
