Good times directing the Sacramento Concert Band again tonight! Back to horn next week.
I’ve done quite expensive trips before, but usually cap it at around $400 and then fund-raise all year toward that goal. #MusEdChat
Working/fundraising toward the goal of the trip & eventually achieving it is a valuable life lesson. #MusEdChat
And visiting university music programs, sitting in on rehearsals, or clinics, or performances definitely make impressions #MusEdChat
as well as the musical experience they gain in the process and (very important) the camaraderie that develops. #MusEdChat
The true success of the ensemble trip comes from the shared experience. The students’ preparation, planning, & execution… #MusEdChat
First “theme park” trip I’ve ever done. We always work in at least one college visitation and try to get clinics w/ mus dept #MusEdChat
Just got back from a band/choir trip a few weeks ago. They are SO worth the effort. #MusEdChat
Fun time performing for Cottage Hill Elementary 1st Graders today at Bear River HS! #musedchat

@roosax Don’t overlook the possibility of tornado wreckage.

@broglarkin Hehe… don’t be so hard on yourself. Part of that program is for inspiring young musicians. Perfection is not a requitement!
@Stonewing I’ll try to make it over in a few. Not sure about Mingus

Some students write out arrangements for Pep Band using Noteflight and we read/fine tune them in summer band. #musedchat
I’d wanted to incorporate more composition / arranging this year, but seem to have run out of time. #musedchat
We’re doing small ensembles on the side (outside of regular class time). To be performed as a recital at our awards BBQ. #musedchat
I have only ensembles. Just finishing up festivals. Spring Concert is in 5 weeks, then graduation a week later. We’re busy. #musedchat
@richardmccready I’m curious. What sort of project is it?
I’m very excited to be here for #MusEdchat today. Hard to find the time this year!
