Welcome to SLBDA

Southwest Louisiana Band Directors' Association


Important Middle School Percussion Information - Please Read Carefully

There will be a brief sectional to make percussion students aware of specific musical parts that they must prepare. This saves rehearsal time as well as incorporates percussion students into the rehearsal from the beginning of the event.


We will use LJ Alleman to rehearse on Tuesday (1/3/23).

Kevin Guidry, will assign parts and briefly go over some sections in the music that might require students to look at the music ahead of time?


The times that we will meet will be as follows:

Concert Band-

5:30-6:15

Symphonic Band-

6:30-7:15

As per Kevin's request, we will hand out all parts to students. Students are not guaranteed a part until he officially assigns it to them. The purpose of doing this is to be productive at the sectional, but to also give students a head's up as to what they could POTENTIALLY be responsible for musically.


Congratulations again, and I look forward to seeing everyone on January 3rd.


Very Respectfully,

Eric LeBlanc
