Dear Band Family,
Thanks to all for a wonderful evening last night at district concert band assessment at FDHS! The students did a wonderful job and have made great strides this year that will only continue to improve!
As with any given year, the audition process for band placement was a difficult one again this year. The audition was very competitive and in many cases there is limited instrumentation in our ensembles. As I told the students in classes today, in order to remain as objective as possible, I am only able to evaluate placement based upon the performance of each recorded student audition at that time. All of our students are developing gradually and progressing in their own journey and it is my hope that regardless of placement that all of our students understand the value and role they play in our program.
We are grateful for a supportive HC band family and for the many opportunities we have as a program! Thanks to you all for your commitment, dedication, and work to provide a world class band experience!
My door is always open and students wishing to receive feedback may come by any time and I’d be glad to help them toward taking the next steps in their musical journey!
