School Daze 10/14/09

Good Evening,
Today, was quiet the productive day. I finally finished reading all the critiques, answered emails, worked on the Disney Trip, studied a couple of Jazz Band scores, instructed period I and J bands, had a clarinet sectional and a very enjoyable jazz band rehearsal. Tonight the jazz band got together for a 2 hour rehearsal. It's great to have students that are dedicated. The band sounded pretty good. Tomorrow, I'll make a few phone calls to see if the jazz band can play a couple of gigs. We still need a few more tunes. Soloist, you need to focus on your solos. Practice please! Remember, there is a new Smart Music assignment.
This Friday, the marching band and colorguard will be performing-call is at 6:00 p.m.
NEWA testing is doing a number on the period I band (this band consist of mostly Freshman). It's OK, as it's time to focus on the Concert Arena. Hopefully, we won't forget the marching show befor Friday :-)
Time to "Rest my Eyes"

Ciao
Mr. B
