The ensembles/classes that we have beginning in January are as follows:
Registration is available online for the auditions and also for the music theory classes. The link to register and print out audition music is:
We are committed to providing quality instruction and education in these chamber ensemble experiences and hope you will take a moment to check out our amazing team members. You can rest assured your students will receive the highest level of music education. We believe in the profound benefit chamber ensembles has on the music education of students and could not be more excited to offer this program to your students.
We are also committed to not being a burden on everyone’s already busy schedule. We only rehearse twice per month on Sunday afternoons beginning in January. We want to place more personal responsibility on the students to prepare outside of rehearsal, treating this as a “professional musician” experience.]]>
You may come at any time during the 6 – 8 PM time frame – there are no “assigned” times. Hopefully students will space themselves out naturally and the lines won’t get too long.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR MB UNIFORM TURN-IN:
ALL uniform parts that belong to the school must be turned in that Wednesday evening – the hat in the hat box (clean – see below), the gauntlets (in the plastic bag) and the parka (washed & DRY – see below). You keep your MB shoes, your equipment bag and your gloves (wash or throw away – you will get 2 new pair next year) and berets (sousas). Clean all your things before storing away so they will be in good condition for next year. You will need your MB shorts and Show Shirt for the Memorial Day parade – put them somewhere you can find them!
The turn-in process will move much more quickly if you clean your hat box and hat at HOME before you come! Everything should be out of the hat box, except for your hat and gauntlets. To clean the hat box please use spray cleaner and paper towels to clean the inside and outside of the box. Leave your name on the box – you will get the same hat next year. To clean the hat please use Lysol (disinfectant) wipes or spray the cleaner onto a paper towel and wipe the outside and inside of the hat. Do not spray cleaner directly on the hat! Undo the chin strap and wipe well. Please dry the hat and box with a dry paper towel or allow to totally air dry before putting the hat away. Wipe and shine the mirrored brim and triangle; if needed you can shine the outside black parts of the hat with a little ArmorAll vinyl protectant. Hats and boxes will be inspected at turn-in.
WASHING THE PARKA: Make sure the pockets are empty! Turn inside out and machine wash in warm or cold water – do not use a detergent with chlorine or any fabric softeners. Hang to dry – this could take a couple of days so please leave enough time to wash and dry thoroughly before turning in. It’s good to hang inside-out first and then turn right side out to make sure all parts are dry – check inside pockets for dryness also.
THE TURN IN PROCESS:
Thanks for a great Marching Band season]]>
