2011-2012 - Another GREAT Year for Bands at HHS!

Post date: Aug 29, 2011 12:19:14 AM

While HMK has been in full swing for close to a month, the true focal point of the band program kicks off on Monday, August 29th with the first Concert Band rehearsal of the new school year!

Band Handbook - all students must download and read-through the 2011-2012 Band Handbook (found as an attachment to this post). The handbook includes pertinent information (including dress rehearsal dates, performance dates, and information regarding PMEA and LLMEA Honor Band Festivals). The final page (Statement of Understanding) must be signed and returned to the band office.

Blank Awards Sheet - should be downloaded by members to keep track of Award Points gained throughout the year. Award Points are tallied at the end of each year to determine participation in Music Awards Night.

Tuning Worksheet - all wind players should download the Tuning Worksheet and begin working with a partner to uncover individual pitch tendencies of his/her instrument. The completed tuning worksheet is the first grade of the 1st marking period.
