The Clinic will be held in Stillwater, OK January 8th and 9th.  Buses will provide transportation to the clinic and be there for the students all day on Friday. Buses will leave and return to Jenks after dropping students off for Saturday morning's rehearsal.  Parents will be responsible for taking students to lunch on Saturday and providing transportation home after the concert.

Students should regularly and diligently practice honor band music so as to be prepared for group rehearsals. These rehearsals are intended for the group to learn to play as an ensemble, experience quality literature, enjoy the honor band experience, and give a top quality performance on Saturday afternoon. In order for this to occur, students must learn the notes, rhythms, and dynamics prior to the honor band clinic.
