Music Notes – 10/17/16
In this week’s MMN…… Working Hard to BECOME the absolute
best LRHS Mustang Bands we can BE! This
is a week full of performance and excitement for our Mustangs!
We Have a Monday FUNdraiser (participate
in all of them to offset the costs for your March Band Trip!), Normally
scheduled rehearsals for the Marching Band (Tu/W/Th), a HOME GAME featuring an
open invitation to any and ALL LRHS band kids and well over 100 Middle School
kids to JAM in the STANDS because Friday is MIDDLE SCHOOL BAND NIGHT 2017! It doesn’t end there: Saturday we will embark
upon a mini-tour participating in our FBA Music Performance Assessment in
Kissimmee FL in the early afternoon and the Braden River FMBC regional in the
evening! A day that will require
stamina, but that will increase our tenacity and endurance. Florida State Marching Band Championships are
less than 4 weeks away! 100% attendance needed, 110%
I need your dedication and commitment to have the next 6
days go Smoothly and Productively. Anyone
missing any rehearsal this week will NOT be included in Saturday’s
performances. Please sleep, eat healthy and Hydrate! Count
on significant outside time. Water bottles, bug spray and DRILL
a 3-week home game stretch coming; Middle School Night 10/21, LRHS Homecoming
and Alumni Night 10/28, and then Senior Night 11/4! It’s time to get your dancing shoes on, crank

GREAT CAN WE BECOME IN THREE REHEARSALS MMB?
SATURDAY WILL BE THE MEASURE!
very sorry that ACT/SAT kids will have to miss the first half of the day
As you know, we have to go to
Kissimmee because of our conflicting Home MPS and the Homecoming Dance. I tried everything I could to find a county
that had an MPA early enough for us to make it back in time for our second
competition, and our boosters begged to keep the double-header away from our
Music In Motion day (November 5th).
District 10 was the only choice. When
I told them we had kids testing, They did their best to accommodate us with the
LAST and latest performance slot, but that is 1:30pm. It is not feasible or safe for you to attempt
to make it an hour-forty-five minutes distance in less than an hour. Count on a great performance on Saturday
Report time for those students will be 6:00pm at LRHS
BandRoom for Dress out and Inspection.
We will have to take your equipment on the buses because the trailers
will already be at Braden River HS.
LRHS MMB Home Game Expectations……
In The Stands
Mr. Lambert’s policy for stands tunes is Everybody, All the Time.
Let’s max that standard out! We are
the example for other students to follow. If we are lively the Student section
will be too! Remember WE are there to
support the TEAM and cheer them on. SPIRIT means Awesomeness and Excellence, not chaos.
Have your music ready at a moment's notice. You are
responsible for your instrument at all times. Stand in front of the seats while
cheering. When it is time to play, stand on the seats with equal spacing
between you with all bells focused in the same direction. When the Drumline plays a cadence, DANCE!
It is our tradition (home and away) to allow you to take a break
during the third quarter to get a drink and something to eat, so bring money.
You must return to our stands ASAP after visiting the concession, rest rooms
and supporting the Drumline show. Drum-Offs STOP before there are 4-minutes
remaining in the 3rd Quarter so that we can be SET to play The Horse on the downbeat of the 4th Quarter. No ifs, ands or buts. Anyone not ready to play on time will
lose next week’s 3rd Quarter privilege.
After The Game
Once the football team is ready, they come over to our section
and we play the Alma Mater to/for them. Afterwards, we form the tunnel on the
track, march back in 2s and assemble in arcs at the
flagpoles. There shall be NO horse-play
here! Your safety crossing the road is Priority # 1! You will be dismissed after final
announcements. The Band Room must be
left Monday-Morning clean!
There is a 30-minute pick-up window
for rides after the band is dismissed. Please have your rides coordinated so
that you are not the only one left late into the night. Parents can plan to pick you up at
approximately 10:30pm. Band members are never released early (unless there is
bad weather and the game is called).
The details listed
above are there for you so that your band experience can be POSITIVE and
ORGANIZED. YOU are responsible for everything outlined in the MMN. Help us ALL have a great year by taking care
of YOUR personal needs and by being ACCOUNTABLE for the guidelines of the LRHS
Your director and staff work hard for you because we BELIEVE in YOU!
