    *Notes about Friday

    • You are with the band starting at 3:30pm. We have a brief rehearsal, then we have a quick break. After that, we go to the Football game and perform.
    • Many students eat right after school before rehearsal. The Eat and Uniform time is very quick and a lot is going on during that time.
    • Winds – please go to your local instrument store and purchase a lyre and flip folder. Bring your instrument with you if possible to get the right “fit” (especially trumpets and saxes). Music and Arts, Freehold Music, and Russo’s Music are very good spots to go. Ask for a "flip folder and lyre"
