BAND DAY A SUCCESS!!!

Thank you to all who made Band Day such a success. The band raised over $4000 towards program costs and student accounts. This commitment from the community in such a challenging economic time resonates how important the band and music education is to our students.

Thank you Sherwood!  You make this a great place for all students!!!

JAZZ BAND AUDITIONS POSTED!!

You will find the jazz band audition materials and information under the Jazz Band page. Students will have at least one week to prepare the material. The materials are very challenging. Please do not be intimidated by the difficulty and do your best. The tempo marking for GOT RHYTHM should be at least QTR note = 158. I will be more than willing to help any student during early lunch or after school.

Only students who want to be in Jazz I need to audition. All other students will automatically be in Jazz II.

MONDAY SEPT. 20th 7AM- SAXOPHONES
TUESDAY SEPT. 21st 7AM- TRUMPETS
WEDNESDAY SEPT. 22nd 7AM- TROMBONES
