Dear Band and Parents,

I want to say thank you for enduring through my learning curve. I promise to get better over time, but I will also make mistakes. You all did an excellent job at being flexible and made the most out of the situation...and ate pizza. ;) 

We did great, our football team looks good, and we had fun. Shout out to our amazing Cheerleaders and Drum line, you are going to kill it! To those who were not able to make it, you missed out. These are the moments we need to build in order to be successful. I can understand, but I must also verify. I need letters from parent(s) or guardian(s) as to why you were not there.

Parent(s) or guardian(s), thank you for your support. I have already talked with some of you, and I understand that we all lead busy lives. All that I ask is that if a child is not at practice or games, you write a letter to verify their absence. I would appreciate your continued support in this matter. Thank you!

Band, I am so proud of how great of a start we are having. I want to congratulate our Minors and Majors (haha, Chris). You all have done an outstanding job! Keep it up. We are counting on you. Brass and woodwinds, keep practicing on your "whooing," remember to make the pitch rise and fall, tension and relax, high and low with mouth piece or reed. We need to continue to work on this skill for a few weeks before we really begin to examine tuning. Ask individuals in you section, use a tuner, or ask me but I need everyone on board. If you don't understand, ASK! Please. ;)

Marching, we need to always be serious. Keep our lines straight. Make sure that we are marching as uniform as possible. ALWAYS! It will help us get into a good habit. Don't settle for good enough. We will be watching video to examine ourselves and see how we can get better as a group. Not to be negative to anyone, but to improve our band. We can do this. You are capable. You are amazing. You are Cougars.

G-High!
Go Cougars!
