Concert Band

Spring 2019

Happy New Year Concert Band Scholars & Parents!

We just finished a fun fall season filled with learning stand tunes, marching a halftime show, and performing a fall and winter concert.  The pace has been fast and there is no slowing down when we return from the holiday break.

The spring semester is our competition season. Every band at B.L. Gray will be competing or performing at a music contest or  music festival in the spring. We will begin after school rehearsals as soon as we get back. Every student is expected to stay after school once a week for music lessons. Parents, students received a practice schedule that you should find in their band binder. 

In addition to the required weekly lesson, students are expected to practice a minimum of 30 minutes every day. Students are welcome to practice at school before or after the school day or even during lunch.  Parents, you can help your child by providing them a regular practice time at home in an assigned room or space. For example, practicing every day in the living room from 5:00-5:30.  

I hope everyone has a great holiday break and gets plenty of rest.  I look forward to seeing y'all when you return after New Years.  I am proud of all of you and the work you have accomplished so far. :)
