WHO: New and returning students interested in percussion (Drumline and Front Ensemble) or Colorguard for the 2015 Marching season
WHAT: Short rehearsal sessions to help students prepare for the season and for their audition into these sections. The last date (August 7) will also serve as the audition into these groups. More information about that below
WHERE: The RHS Band room (e-mail Mr. Hansen for directions if needed)
WHEN: Auditions: August 7 (Thursday) 9:00 am - noon.
WHY: These practice sessions are an optional, however they are a great chance for new and returning students to prepare for the coming year and the audition. During these sessions, students will receive information about the audition process, what materials are needed, etc. This is also a chance for new students to see what group (Drumline, Front Ensemble, or Colorguard) is the best fit for them and their abilities.
It is my hope that this will help better prepare students for the season to come. The percussion staff and section leaders will be at these sessions in addition to myself teaching and coaching the entire time. As mentioned, in addition to developing fundamental percussion and colorguard skills, we will also help prepare students for the auditions on August 7 (9:00 - noon). If a student isn't able to make this audition time they need to contact me to set up an alternative meeting. Also, I will e-mail out the audition materials after the first training this Friday so that students who aren't able to attend still have the necessary information.
