Concert Etiquette

This is an important topic which we will cover before all performances with the students and at the beginning of all performances with the audience. Good concert etiquette shows respect to the hours and hours of hard work that teachers and students have put into making the concert an enjoyable evening.

***We encourage you to bring small children, but if they become fussy or noisy, please step into the hallway or lobby with them.
***All electronics should be silenced (not on vibrate) and dimmed.
***Take as many photos as you like, but please turn off the flash.
***There is NO food or drink permitted in the PAC.
***All students will stay for the duration of the concert; as such, families should stay for the entire performance.
***Please do not interrupt the performance by leaving or entering during a song (unless it is to take care of a crying baby or something like that. :-)
***Do not talk or whisper during performances as this is distracting to other audience members.


email blast from 12/6: 🎵☃️🎶 concert 12/18 info (long- save for future reference!)

Hello everyone! We are now 12 days from the Band Winter Concert, and I am so pleased with how things are shaping up. The ensembles are sounding more cohesive every day, and I have been impressed with how many students have made it their goal to truly master their music. To say I'm proud is an understatement, and I'm sure you'll feel the same way at the conclusion of our concert. I know the students are excited to get under those bright lights and show off all of their hard work and musical skills. 🎶
Monday, December 18th at 7pm at the Bordentown Regional HIGH School Performing Arts Center
Students should report at 6:30 with their instruments and sheet music. Instruments must go home with students after school that day as BRMS will not be accessible before the concert.
Upon entering the main doors of the high school, students will head straight downstairs to the music room to warm up their instruments. The PAC doors will open to audience members at 6:30.
Students in jazz band should wear all black, and concert band students should wear a white top and black bottom. Shoes should be black/dark. Festive touches are fine as long as they're not distracting. (ties, hats, necklaces, etc.) Jazz students do not need to change into a white shirt for concert band. Reach out with any uncertainties.
I expect the concert to be less than an hour long- plenty of time to go get ice cream afterward!
On Monday morning, we will rehearse at the high school. This is an important part of the concert prep as students will practice the flow of the event and acclimate themselves to the acoustic and lighting differences compared to the auditorium that they're used to. Please make every effort to get your awesome young musician to school on time that day with their instruments and sheet music ready to go.
Students not in jazz band will not need their instruments for the rest of that week due to planned activities. Jazz band will rehearse on Thursday 12/21 and perform for the school during the pep rally on Friday 12/22. Jazz students should wear their BRMS music department T-shirts or an ugly sweater that day. Shirts are still available for $10.
Any student who is interested in trying out for the jazz band for spring semester can do so in January. Materials will be posted to the Google classroom. Current members do not need to re-audition.
A note on concert etiquette:
Good concert etiquette shows respect to the hours and hours of hard work that teachers and students have put into making the concert an enjoyable evening.
  • There is NO food or drink permitted in the PAC.
  • All electronics should be silenced (not on vibrate) and dimmed.
  • Take as many photos as you like, but please turn off the flash. The concert will be recorded and posted to the Google classroom, so we encourage you to stay in the moment and let the music move you.
  • We encourage you to bring small children, but if they become fussy or noisy, please step into the hallway or lobby with them.
  • Please do not interrupt the performance by leaving or entering during a song (unless it is to take care of a child, etc).
Most importantly!
  • Do not talk or whisper during performances as this is distracting to other audience members and the performers. Please express your enthusiastic support by applauding and cheering after a piece finishes. For jazz soloists, clap whenever you like what you hear!
Please reach out with any questions or concerns. I am looking forward to showing off everything we've learned during these past three months of lessons and rehearsals. Watching your children get dressed up, behave professionally, and play their hearts out is one of the most gratifying parts of my job. It'll be a great night- see you there!

email blast from 11/13 "conferences and schedule for the rest of 2023"

Hello band families! Here is a link to sign up for a parent teacher conference with me. It is optional, but I'd love to sing the praises of your amazing young musician, meet some new families, and answer any questions you have. There are two dates with separate links for the Teams meetings, and I will send out the link the morning of the conferences.
Concert band and jazz band WINTER CONCERT Monday, December 18th at 7pm at the Bordentown Regional HIGH SCHOOL Performing Arts Center! Students report at 6:30 wearing black and/or white (jazz students wear all black). More info is on my website and the band handbok.
No lessons this Wednesday as it is the first day of quarter 2; lessons can be made up on Thursday or Friday.
Because there is no AE during half days, all music students will be pulled from core 2 this Friday 11/17 and next Wednesday 11/22. We've done this in years past and it has always worked out well, but if your child has an issue or needs to stay in core 2 either of those days, that's ok. Teachers are pretty flexible on these half days leading up to Thanksgiving, and it gives the music students extremely valuable time to prepare for the upcoming concerts. Mixed choir students will attend both choir and band rehearsal during this time.
The mixed choir, select choir, bucket drumming, and orchestra Winter Concert is on Monday, December 7th at 7pm at the BRHS PAC.
Have you heard your child play their instrument lately? I encourage you to ask them to bring their instrument home and show off what they're learning. At-home practicing and informal performances elevate a student's technical ability and motivates them to keep striving to be better. As I like to say, the hardest part of practicing an instrument at home is opening up the case. 😄
Please reach out with any questions or concerns, and have a lovely day!

2023 Middle School Band Day with the BRHS Marching Scotties

Hello, families of BRMS musicians! Our annual "Middle School Day" with the nearly-world-famous, award-winning, newly OPEN CLASS (it's a big deal) BRHS Marching Scotties is Friday, October 6th at 4:30pm. This is a fun event that is open to all middle schoolers regardless of their intentions to join marching band in the future.
Please fill out this form if your child will be attending Middle School Band Day on 10/6.
Students should be dropped off at 4:30 at the side doors of BRHS, near the athletic field lot. I will be outside directing them into the band room where they will meet marching band students in their sections, set up their instruments, and rehearse "Sweet Caroline" and the school fight song. We will then march up to the football field together. Students will stay with me on the sidelines while the band performs pre-game, then we will all sit together in the stands. Students may look off of their neighbors' music and play along with other stands tunes if they are feeling bold, otherwise they'll just play the fight song at every touchdown and "Sweet Caroline" at some point. At halftime, we will stand together on the sidelines and watch the band perform their 2023 competitive show "The Tribal Affect". Students have the third quarter off to visit the concession stand, and they must stay in the complex. We will reconvene in the stands for the 4th quarter, then march back to the school after the football game ends. A Remind text will be sent out when the game is finished, and students can be picked up where they were dropped off on the side of the school. Text code @3fbbh9 to 81010 to join the BRMS Band Remind.
I recommend wearing the BRMS Music Department t-shirt, but please dress for the weather!
There is no deadline to sign up for this event, but the sooner I know who is attending, the earlier they can get the sheet music. Families are welcome to attend the game as well, but you will need to purchase tickets at the gate. $4 adults/$2 children This football game is also homecoming, so it will be more busy than usual.
Please reach out with questions, comments, or concerns!
Have a wonderful day 🎵
