Band Calendar 2014-2015
Swanton Band Summer Practice Schedule
August 11 - 15
Reflections on Last Week
There are so many good things happening right now! We can march and play all of the opener and half of “Fly Me to the Moon”. Almost everyone has the entire opener memorized, the style of “Fly Me to the Moon” is getting much better, and “Clair de Lune” will continue to improve! However, with all these good things happening, there is still plenty of room for improvement. PLEASE make sure you hurry back to your spots, cut out the talking during rehearsal and save it for your break, and try to make at least one thing better each time we play or march. Remember, we will only perform as well as we have rehearsed. That first contest will be here sooner than you think.
Goals for the Next week
Learn Pre-Game and First Half-time show HOME vs. Springfield (Eye of Tiger, We Got the Beat, Crazy Train)
Continue working on music for “Clair de Lune” and begin working on “Mars”
Add charts 23- – 30 (End of Fly Me to the Moon and all of Clair de Lune)
