Welcome to the Teague Band Program!  This website was created to familiarize you with the many aspects of the  program, and to ensure an enjoyable and educationally rewarding musical  experience.  I realize you are deluged with reading material from the school  at the beginning of the year, but PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO LOOK  THROUGH THE WEBSITE!     The Band Handbook is a MUST READ.  After you have read the Handbook,  please print and sign the last page and return it to me.  Band students will  be held accountable for the information contained therein, so please keep it  handy for future reference. You may download the entire Handbook from  this site. Band is an elective and selective course. It differs from the general music  class, or any other course on the enrichment wheel. In that, we seek to  develop and put to use a SKILL. It involves learning math concepts and  applying them (rhythm), learning and applying a new system of notation,  developing fine motor skills, developing our ability to really hear, and  becoming sensitive: to the sounds we make, to the sounds others make, to  the musical demands of the piece. It requires cooperation with a large team  of musicians, working together toward a common goal. In addition, of  course it also requires extra practice at home, occasional after school  rehearsals and performances, and investment in an instrument. Band  involves responsibility to the group. The sound each student makes  changes the sound of the entire group. One student can literally ruin the sound of an entire 80-piece band!   ..read more.
