HOW TO PREPARE​​
  • Stay active and spend time outside during the month of June.  Get your body acclimated to doing physical activity in the heat.

  • Cut out sugary drinks and start drinking water instead.  Hydrating your body has to happen in advance – drinking a Gatorade before a rehearsal will not give your body time to get rid of all the junk you had previously put in it!  Drinking water before bed can help your body repair itself so that you can perform better the next day.

  • Eat breakfast every day.  At lunch and dinner, stop eating when you are no longer hungry.  Do not treat mealtime as a chance to see how much food you can eat before becoming uncomfortable. 

  • It is crucial that every member continue to improve his or her craft individually during the month of June.  That means playing your instrument and spinning your flag.  Playing an instrument is not like riding a bike!  It is more like being an athlete and you have to keep your chops in shape.  If you don’t use it, you lose it!

  • Great accomplishments require great expectations.  Every wind player is expected to be able to play his/her notes and rhythms by the first day of band camp. 

MATERIALS
  • Water bottle/jug with name (MANDATORY!)
  • Lunch with plenty of snacks
  • Light colored clothes

Every student must be prepared with all materials at every rehearsal.  If a student is unprepared, the following consequences may be carried out: Running laps, extra clean-up responsibilities, cleaning the band locker room, being denied the opportunity to perform that weekend, etc.
