Pre-Band Schedule

All financial obligations must be taken care of by this time. Students who still owe money from last year, registration, or the first trip payment will not be allowed to rehearse during pre-band until all financial obligations are up to date (the 2nd trip payment is due at the end of the first week of pre-band). If fees are not paid by the time school begins, schedules will be changed and names placed on hold in the office.

Brass, Woodwinds, Battery, Front Ensemble, and Guard Rehearsals

Each day, a good portion of rehearsal will be out in the sun. Students should spend some time outside this summer so they will be used to and ready to handle the heat.

For this week - Outside rehearsals in the morning will be at the north parking lot or the track & field. The surface is asphalt. Outside rehearsals in the evening will be at the stadium. Surface is turf. For safety reasons - students are not allowed to drive from football fields to music building during pre-band. Regardless of outside rehearsal location - students are to park at the music building and walk to different rehearsal areas.

For all rehearsals during pre-band, there are no jeans allowed – students must wear shorts. Proper footwear is tennis shoes – no sandals, flip flops, etc. Shoes should be tightly laced, not loose and only for decoration. Finally, every student should bring their own water for all outside rehearsals. You will need a large jug of water.  A twelve-ounce bottle will not suffice. There is to be no sharing of water. Students must take water jugs home each night to clean and refill them. 

8:00 am – 12:00 pm

  • Brass, Battery, and Woodwinds – two hours will be spent outside doing marching fundamentals and body work and then two hours spent inside for sectionals. Some sectionals may be held outdoors as it is necessary to hear music in proper context.
  • Front Ensemble – will be inside most of the time.
  • Guard – see guard facebook page for all details.

5:00 pm – 9:00 pm

  • Brass, Battery, and Woodwinds – two hours will be spent inside working on contest music and stand tunes as a full group and then two hours outside at the field with marching fundamentals and body work.
  • Front Ensemble – will be inside most of the time and begin to transition outside as needed.
  • Guard – may rotate locations between PEG Gym and outside/stadium.
