Rookie Camp starts next week!
This camp will be for incoming winds musicians, ALL percussion, and all leadership team members.
The camp will run from 9:00a-3:00p, Monday through Friday. Students should plan on arriving in the band room around 8:50a at the latest.
What to bring?
A large mouth water jug (not a dasani water bottle), filled with water (we provide refills)
A packed lunch (students may not leave campus during our lunch period)
Instrument (if they own one)
An extra t-shirt (you won't have to wear a sweaty t-shirt after the morning workout!)
NEW FOR ALL WINDS - a 1 inch 3 ring binder (you'll want plastic sheet protectors as well)
What to wear?
Warm weather, athletic clothing
No jeans, long sleeve shirts, flip flops
What will we be doing?
Students will be learning visual movement and music basics this week. The techniques and basics discussed will apply in band throughout the entire year.
We are excited to have all new band students together for the first time next week! This is only the beginning of what will surely be another amazing year!
