2016-17  Trinity Christian Academy Band

Welcome to the website of the Trinity Christian Band from Jacksonville, FL.   The site will be a link for all students and parents to stay informed about what is happening in the band at TCA.  It will give a place to look at the calendar, look at the handbooks, download forms and just have some fun with the pictures and fun stuff.



FESTIVAL DISNEY REPORT
APRIL 28 - 29

Dear parents and students,

For about 7 months now we have been planning and working hard for our first ever band competition at Disney World.  On Friday we spent a day at the Magic Kingdom.   We then watched a thrilling performance of the Cirque Du Solei show La Nouba at Disney Springs.  With much of our marching this past fall based on La Nouba it was great thrill to hear the music live and see the circus acts that went along with the music.  Saturday was festival day.  The band performed in the Contemporary Resort Hotel in front of a distinguished panel of college judges followed by a clinic from Gary Langford who is a former director at UF.  We then went to Hollywood Studios and spent some time there until the awards presentations at Typhoon Lagoon.  The band did a great job on stage and impressed the judges enough for them to give us a SUPERIOR rating.  In our division of three bands we received  BEST IN CLASS and among all the high school bands regardless of division we received the Festival Disney SILVER TROPHY for 2nd place.  All the students will receive a Disney metal at the band banquet.  Thank you band students and parents for making this trip happen and helping us bring everyone home safely. 

Mr. Cordell




SUMMER BAND CAMPS

The summer band camps start soon and I encourage everyone to participate in these camps.  We offer a beginner band camp, marching band camps, and private lessons for everyone.  Click HERE for the summer brochure and turn it in by June 1.  There are also camps available at FSU and UNF.  Use the summer to improve your skills and get a head start for the fall.

UPGRADE THAT INSTRUMENT


At some point a student is limited by the quality of his instrument.  A new instrument or music supplies would be a great gift anytime. Also make sure that any upgrades are quality name brand instruments.  Cheap China, no-name imports, will not give you satisfactory results and are subject to numerous breakdowns and poor intonation.  Ask Mr Cordell for suggestions or check with our friends at Music and Arts.

Overlapping sports policy
 
This is a reminder that sports  (including marching band) that have overlapping seasons have  a policy from the school that you cannot just drop one sport to go to another until the first sport is finished.  Students wanting to do soccer, baseball, basketball, etc. should work carefully with your coach to come on days we do not have band practice or performances.  Your first obligation is to the band as you are graded on this and many of you receive academic credit for it.  Of course even for the Christmas concert, spring concerts and contests students are expected to give band priority as you do receive academic credit for your performances.
