SUMMER BAND CAMP
Marching Band involves learning marching fundamentals, memorization of the music & drill, & rehearsals that synchronize music & motion. Training for the season consists of a three-week process that ingrains the skills that will be used throughout the season.
Rehearsals in the morning with sectionals in the afternoons. Members learn marching fundamentals, Pre-game, Stand Tunes, & all "functional" music & moves that will be used during the season.
Rehearsals run all day. About "seven weeks" of normal rehearsal time is condensed into this period of time. The show is learned, fundamentals are ingrained, & esprit de corps is built through team-building activities.
This time serves as the last completely undistracted opportunity to focus on our show.
Camp attendance mandatory for all Marching Rebels.
What to bring?
Light weight athletic clothes (no pants, boots, etc.) that’s comfortable to move in
1” 3-ring binder with sheet protectors (for music and drill)
Instrument & supplies (reeds, oil, etc.)
