Important Notes: Band Camp Week 1, Week 2 and week 3 are required - mandatory camps for ALL Band Members. These camps involve learning basic marching, learning music, and practicing for our fall marching show, as well as pre-game. These camps will include music rehearsals, warm-ups, sectional practice, marching fundamentals, drill work, etc.. in order for us to learn the fundamentals necessary for our show. If you do not attend Band Camp Week 1(Percussion and Color Guard), Week 2 and Week 3 a spot Will NOT be guaranteed for you in the show.(Communication with the Director is very important.)
Food: snacks and drinks you will need to provide; lunch will be provided this year,
Clothing: Wear light clothing, color and weight, shorts, t-shirts, tennis shoes (required), and extra socks. Students can also wear a hat to cover their heads and faces from the sun. Water bottles, sunscreen, sunglasses, snacks, and extra clothes for inclement weather are also good ideas.
There are 5 home (at Tech) football Games and 5 away Games (may not travel to all the away games), there are also numerous festivals and competitions we attend on Saturday’s and you are required to participate. Parades are also a part of what we do.
There is a fee which we require and is not covered under the fee waiver program of Livingston Academy, this is to be paid by all band and color guard members. Our show for the fall is scheduled to be “TBD”. If you have any questions, please call or email me, Thank you.
