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.
