CREEKVIEW BAND ANNOUNCEMENTS AND UPDATES (JUNE/JULY)
INCOMING MUSTANG BAND MEMBERS,
Updates for the Summer months of June and July. We'll be updating the site as we get closer and closer to summer band.
I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT BAND, SCHEDULE, INSTRUMENT…
Please feel free to email me anytime!
WHAT CAN I DO TO MAKE SURE I HAVE A MARCHING SPOT?
We would love to march all the students in the band, however, we will have a group of students that will be in a shadow capacity and that’s okay! In order to SECURE a spot here are some things we look at and consider. Academic eligibility, attendance at all rehearsals, positive attitude, practices and is showing evidence of improvement and application of knowledge. Students that have completed BAND REGISTRATION, BAND FEES and participate are almost always guaranteed a spot. Marching Band is a very exciting activity and has competitive drive – the expenses of the show are high and our level of instruction and resources is incredible. Your understanding and support is critical in order to further boost the students, their production and their musical growth and enjoyment!
MARCHING BAND GUIDES: we are excited! In the coming months, we will email you with documents that explain our marching technique and show you videos on how to learn and approach our marching style! Be on the look out – great info is coming your way soon!
STEP UP INSTRUMENTS: As you transition from MS to HS, we all begin the consideration of upgrading our current instruments! We highly support your vision and interest in securing a STEP UP / upgrade instrument for your child. This will GREATLY help them accelerate in their performance and enjoyment level. Considerations: we will ask you to use that instrument for concert season and use your entry level instruments for marching band as much as possible to prolong their life and maintenance upkeeping.
BAND AUDITIONS: If you had trouble and were not able to submit your audition, you may send it in to Mr. Denis via this link. We did hear back that some students did not have an instrument to audition – We will place them in a (pending) band placement and listen to them play in the fall. ( email us if you need to submit an audition - email@example.com )
BAND PLACEMENT RESULTS: Results are posted and we're excited to have you all in band!
WHAT IF I DIDN’T GET INTO THE BAND I WANTED?
It’s okay and very possible that we may start outside of the band we want right away and that’s mostly due to the nature of having older students in the program, you will be in band with us for 4 years and each year you’ll have opportunities for chair tests or accolades and experience that will springboard you into a higher band placement. Be patient and know that we’re all on your side and want to provide you with the appropriate challenge for your playing ability! Don’t worry!
BAND COURSE ENROLLMENT: Some of our students were not enrolled in the band class – most have been fixed – but I would STRONGLY recommend that you email our LEAD CHS COUNSELOR and GREAT Friend of the CHSBAND to confirm that your child is enrolled in band.
EMAIL: ANGELA CURTIN – firstname.lastname@example.org
CONFIRM your child in enrolled in BAND.

What is Color Guard?
Color Guard is a performance activity that involves dancing and spinning flags, rifles, and sabres. During the fall season, color guard performs with the marching band at football games, pep rallies, and local/national competitions. During the winter/spring seasons, color guard performs indoors, separate from the band at competitions both local and nationally. Please watch this short video HERE to see what we do.
Who can join?
ANY student that will attend CHS for the 2020-2021 school year. Boys and girls both welcome! No experience is necessary, we will teach you how to do it! Most of our members show up with zero experience, and we have a great staff that can teach anyone how to do it.
We are currently accepting members for the 2020-2021 school year! Please fill out this form for more information about tryouts and color guard in general. Even if you’re not quite sure yet, signing up is a great way to learn more about it and see if it’s something you’d enjoy!

WHEN IS BAND REGISTRATION?
We usually have Band Registration JULY 25 – during that time, parents fill out paper information/consent documents and have an opportunity to size for various band required apparel and items. We usually collect a deposit to ensure we can reserve a spot for the student to march and confirm that he/she will be a part of our marching show investment.
*Currently we will are planning on going paperless for the time being, we will have a google form with all of the information for you to read and provide us and will accept an eAcknowledgement agreement until we can have a paper copy signed in the fall.
We will communicate and distribute this to everyone in the coming weeks! Band Registration is our next step and highly important important in determining how many students we can write to march in the marching show.
WHEN CAN I CHECK OUT A BAND INSTRUMENT?
We were able to issue instruments on July 8/9th - if we missed you and you need an instrument - Please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org )
WILL WE HAVE A SUMMER BAND?
Yes! That is a great question and a common topic – we have a band summer schedule that is printed and provided in our google calendar and website. For now, we will have a designated day and time to distribute school owned instruments for you in June. We will begin summer band in JULY as normal. We of course proceed at the recommendation and guidance of our district and CFB Fine Arts office.
WHAT DO I DO or PLAY BETWEEN NOW AND THE START OF SUMMER?
Between now and then – you should play with the mindset of why you began in the first place! Which is – you love music and your instrument and playing! So work on things that will further help you become a more proficient player, scales, fundamentals, lip slurs, technique, assignments from lesson teachers, stand tunes, band music, jazz music, new music purchased online(esheetmusic) solos – marching show music and anything you find in our creekview band music folder (click to go directly to the online music folder)
