Band Camp & Rehearsal Details

Band Reminders & Announcements

Happy Fourth!
A few reminders and announcements.

This week there is no rehearsal due to Missouri Activities dead week. I encouraged section leaders to get together with their sections to either practice or get to know each other better.

I will be in the office all day Wednesday through Thursday. We have a team working to create stl metro8 packets and another group working on the storage closet on Wednesday. Contact Emily Weaver if you are able to help.

All forms are (especially the physical) by the first day of band camp July 17th.

I need all new members and section leaders at our Freshman Camp July 12 – 14th 8-Noon. I also need as many bandsmen there as possible. Last year we had almost the entire band. Let’s replicate that.

Section Leaders. There are a few students that are signed up and have not made any contact with us since. This is the week to get a yes or a no from them so that we can get them hooked up or adjust and move on.

I will have the camp documents finished by tomorrow and post them here and on the website. They will line out what is expected, required and happens at each camp as well as how after school rehearsals are structured. I am in the process of building a band handbook that is desperately needed. It will take me some time to complete it.

Someone please post this to the website and email on charms when they have a chance.

Thanks!
Mr. Stegeman

June Meeting Minutes

Uniform Fitting at Music Rehearsal 6/27

Band fam,

Hope everyone is well and enjoying their summer so far.

On Tuesday I will miss rehearsal due to the birth of my son. We need as many students at that rehearsal as possible. Our uniform company representative will be there to fit the band for uniforms at 5:30pm. John Miller will be in charge of this process. Winds and percussion will do one hour of music. Winds lead by Joe Sparks and perc by Mark Ishman. At 5:00 pm, winds and battery will move to the large gym (if available) for visual rehearsal. Pit and guard rehearsals are normal.

On Thursday I will be at rehearsal to run music with winds from 4-5:30pm. At that time, I will leave to help my wife at home and winds and battery will move to visual training with Mr. Sparks.

Thoughts: we had our first rehearsal outside yesterday. Make sure you are hydrating the day before you are rehearsing. If you are hot and thirsty, it’s too late. We also need to our diet around lean protein, minimal dairy, and average carbs (they need the energy) it would be a good idea to go shopping next week to make sure you have lunches lined out and all of the required materials for camp. (See commitment night hand out or wait for the camp details doc)

I am so excited! Our new students are working really well! They are learning fast and are so positive! Our vets are engaged and open. They have been so helpful with new students! The leadership is growing by leaps and bounds. Mr. Sparks and I talked last night about what a great year it is going to be! Mr. Miller told me how much he adores this new team!

We are going to kill it this season. Keep up the good work and keep practicing!

Coming soon:
