Tuesday Night - Checking it out!

WOW! Patriots won last night - I'm a little worried about their defense - hey wait a minute this is the AHS MUSIC website not New England Patriot radio - though, for a price maybe we'll let them link to us :-)

So many new things on our site - I'm going to need to spend a weekend just getting used to navigating it. I hope many of you have taken the opportunity to explore! Today we added documents to the choral section. A little more tweaking.. but that's a separate email.
Did you catch the 1st critique assignment? I just finished the Jazz Theory Quiz # 1, unfortunately it's very late (at least for me) so I'll just present the material to the Jazz Band in the morning.
In due time, this will be the place to go for all music department related items- oh what fun!
Special thanks today to our Drum Major - Anthony, for handling the student run sectional and cleaning the music room for the guidance department meeting on college applications and scholarships.
Speaking of college- SENIORS- if you would like me to write you a letter of recommendation please get your resume to me ASAP!
Tomorrow night (Wednesday) you know it as HUMP DAY!
The plan for rehearsal - re do sets 16-23 (Love Shack) and getting it ready to perform Thursday Evening. Yes, we have a football game Thursday night instead of Friday night!
I will also go over a couple of the opening sets as well as refining getting on and off the field.
Saturday is the Lichfield Parade. We will meet at Alvirne for 8:15 a.m. and depart by 9:15 a.m
Step off time is 10:00 a.m. We should be back to AHS no later than 11:30 a.m. So please inform your parents as many students need to meet the bus in Concord for the Speedway Clean Up!
OK, this is a short blog tonight as we have a couple of full days ahead of us and Mr. B needs his beauty sleep.
Till tomorrow,
Mr. B
