The PHS Marching band is into it's summer schedule! We've done 2 of our 3 Mini-Band Camp rehearsals. With one more scheduled for Wednesday, July 24 and Band Camp on the horizon, the students are in a great position! At our last rehearsal, we determined that most students have the complete first movement memorized and ready to put on the field. Colorguard has been working on establishing a solid ground in basics and is ready to go with the fight song for pre-game. Our goal for next week is to commit the second movement to memory so that when we get to band camp, we can dive right in with the drill.
New members - you are progressing very nicely! You can use your back yard to practice the marching basics we've covered. Don't feel silly - it will just help you when we start learning drill!
I am very proud of the work that you all have put in up to this point. But we're just getting started! Remember - you perform how you rehearse. If you show up to rehearsal prepared and ready to tackle the goals at hand, and keep errors caused by a lack of preparation and lack of focus to a minimum, there's no saying how far we can go! Keep up the great work!
