Northwinds Homeschool Band Attendance

2017 —2018 School Year

Rehearsal Attendance

  •  It is extremely important that every effort be made to make each rehearsal. Students that miss several rehearsals quickly fall behind.
  • However, please use good public health judgment, and keep students home if contagious.
  • Early is on time, on time is late, and late is unacceptable.
  • If you will be missing a rehearsal, please let me know in advance by phone. The closer to the concert, the more important advance notice becomes.
  • The last several rehearsals before the concert are extremely important. Please make extra efforts to be there.


Concert/Festival Attendance

  • Northwinds usually has three concerts (December, March, June), and one or two festivals (March, April)
  • Jazz bands also attend additional festivals.
  • Participation in all concerts and festivals is required. Please mark your calendar as soon as dates are announced, and plan around these dates.
  • Please remember, that your child(ren) is(are) part of a team, and the director and other band members depend on them being there. All parts are important. There are no bench warmers in band.
