Good morning and Happy Summer!
I hope that you are all enjoying some well-deserved R&R during these Summer months. Sarah and I just returned from a week on the lake (Bull Shoals). It was fantastic to shut off the phones, forget about school for a bit and just enjoy each other's company. I hope that you all make time to do the same!
I wanted to make sure that everyone was aware of this year's SCMMEA Summer Meeting. It is scheduled for Saturday, August 28th at Parkview High School. More information will be released as the date approaches but I wanted to give you a heads up as to what band events will be offered.
1. READING SESSION!!
-BRING YOUR HORNS!! That's right! Back by popular demand, we will be having another reading session! The session we had 2 years ago was so much fun and a complete success. In addition to some great concert pieces, I have requested a few flex jazz tunes too! It should be a great time for everyone!
2. ROUND TABLE DISCUSSION
-Are you ever unsure when it comes to the District and State level band events? Do you know where to find all the necessary information for Junior High District Band? Are you aware of the changes to the State Jazz Etudes? What about the overhaul of the District and State level percussion audition material?
We will discuss any and all of your questions and concerns during this session.
Keep an eye out for further information. In the meantime, enjoy your time off!
