MEYZEEK   BANDS

Subtitle

We look forward to seeing you at the


2019


WINTER CONCERT


     This year, we are fortunate to be able to use Ballard High School's Fine Arts Center!  We are very thankful to Mr. Carl Kling and the staff at Ballard for affording us this opportunity!  Their "Fine Arts Center" is across the drive from their football field.  You can't miss it...it has 30-foot tall windows on the front!


     6th Grade Bandlings need to be on stage by 5:59 PM on Dec. 17.  7th & 8th Graders need to be seated, instruments ready, at 6:30.  The CURTAIN is at 7 PM.


     Please...do NOT bring food or drinks into the auditorium, and take a minute to pick-up 


     (Clarinet and flute cases can stay in the audience with the parents, and save some traffic issues backstage.)

     Pictures from our 2019 Light-Up Louisville Parade Performance have been added to the "Media, '19-'20" Page!

     THANK YOU to all who were a part of supporting our Meyzeek Bandlings!
IMPORTANT!

     We use the Remind! app for communication when time is an issue, such as last-minute questions for a performance, cancellation of a rehearsal, etc.

     Remind! has made some changes over the summer.  Because of this, there are now individual codes for each class and Jazz Band, rather than just one for the whole Band Department.  Text the following codes to 81010 to enroll.  Once you do, you will be asked for your name (please...no nicknames!), then if you are the parent or student.
8th Grade Band: "@8Band2020"
7th Grade Band: "@7Band2020"
THIRD period 6th Grade: "@6thband3"
SIXTH period 6th Grade: "@6thband6"
Jazz Band: "@2020jazz"

     This year's Band Handbook is available online, below and on the "Documents" tab.  It is posted on the "Documents" tab for the entire year, and here for the first few weeks of school.


     Returning Bandlings must print the last page, complete it, and return it to Mr. Daniel by Sept. 3.


     NEW Bandlings will be given a hard-copy, and their last page is also due on Sept. 3.

Bandmate Chromatic Tuner

     EVERY musician must develop their ears.  It is necessary that all of us be able to play every note on our instruments "in tune."  That is, our sound waves are physically synchronized with the sound waves of our fellow Bandlings.


     This app was written by a band director.  It is simple to use, and best of all, it is FREE.  PLEASE use it, or purchase a hand-held tuner from a music store!

Just a friendly reminder:

     Unless they have permission from the ensemble's director, members do NOT change their instruments.  No, this isn't an issue right now.  Quite honestly, it's just a simple reminder before it becomes an issue in the future.

     (It's akin to a football player deciding on their own that they aren't going to be a receiver, anymore, and they are going to, instead, be the quarterback.)
