Please join the BRMS Bands Remind group to stay up-to-date on rehearsals, concerts, and events. Text @3fbbh9 to 81010 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Full band rehearsals will take place from 10:10-10:40. Concert band (everyone) will meet on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. Jazz band will meet on Wednesdays and Fridays. On AEP days (one Wednesday per month), the jazz band will meet from 7:58-8:55 and the concert band will meet from 10:48-11:13. AEP days are all marked on the calendar of this website.
Students in Select Chorus should attend on Wednesdays and Fridays, unless they are in jazz band. If that is the case, come see me. Students in Mixed Chorus should attend on Tuesdays. All students in chorus need to check in with their band AE teachers for attendance before leaving.
Weekly pull-out lessons will begin after the first full week of school. Schedules and groups will be emailed home and posted outside of the music classroom. Students will be pulled out of their AM special one week and their PM special the next. If students miss several lessons in a row, parents/guardians will be contacted. Students may be dropped from band if they are consistently missing their lessons.
We have BRMS Music Department shirts available for $10. I strongly encourage everyone to purchase one because there are times we will wear them as a group. Please reach out if financial hardship is an issue, and we will accommodate your child. If you ordered one, they are available for pick-up during students lunches and lessons.
