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.
