Dear Ensemble Members, Parents, and Guardians:
Welcome to another great year in Band. Contained within this site is all the information you need to become an active member of the Lin-Wood School Band. The policies contained herein are not sealed in stone however, and changes will be announced as needed throughout the year. Please read and familiarize yourself with the information. The more you know about your program, the more success you will have in music.
The music program depends on individual responsibility. Listed here are the primary responsibilities of the people necessary to achieve greatness:
The Music Students are responsible for themselves. They should strive for academic excellence as well as musical performance. They should set professional examples of behavior, attitude, and appearance. They should have pride in their music, their ensemble, their school, their community, and THEMSELVES!!
The music teacher is responsible for educating the student. The music teacher will set and maintain high academic and musical standards for the students and create an atmosphere that is conducive to learning.
The Music Parents/Guardians are responsible for providing an atmosphere where the students can learn and develop. They are responsible for supporting the students as they strive for academic excellence and musical ability.
Each of these items is a piece of the ensemble puzzle. If any piece is missing, the ensemble will be incomplete. If everyone, from the director to the students to the parents, works together, the music program will succeed.
If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me.
