Scholarship Auditions

Seniors,

It is time to start auditioning for scholarships.  If you are planning to attend college in the fall you need to audition.  There is money out there for you, even if you are not a music major.

As I get info I will add it to this post, but be sure to search the school you are interested in.  Go to their web site and find the details.  Most audition in January and/or February.  Don’t miss out.

MB Contract and Signature page

Mr. Sivert and I had a conversation the other day about expectations and the Register My Athlete page. He wants me to make sure that the band is following school and district polices. Since we don’t do physicals for MB (and maybe we should) we really don’t want to do everything on Register My Athlete. Also since all of my stuff is already on line at the this web site we came up with an easy solution. He would like me to have a signature page from every student and parent that indicates you understand the polices. So I created such a document and I now need to collect it. I will have paper copies next week and the first day of school, but if you can get a jump on it, it saves me time. You can find the document here.
Thanks for understanding and just getting it in. Please have it filled out and returned by Aug 21, the second day of school.

2018 Basin Honor Band

You should all register for this opportunity.  It is not required, but you would be foolish to not do it.  Seniors it is a last chance to play some new music before you leave us.  Don’t miss the chance.

Marching Band Time

It’s time to start planning for the next Marching Band Season.  We will be again hosting some Saturday events to introduce what we do to potential students.  The first such event will be held on March 3rd in the band room at the HS.  The other dates include April 7, and two Saturdays in May.

We are in the process of creating an Honor Band for the region.  The dates for that have not been set yet, but will likely require us to cancel one of the May MB clinics.  As soon as that information is locked in we will update you.

Either way you will want to keep both May 12 and 19 free for band.
