ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

Camp is not that far off! Make sure you are taking time to do the following things this summer in order to be prepared:

1. Drink lots of water.

2. Get exercise!

3. Try to get outside during a warmer part of the day, even for 10-15 minutes to help your body prepare for late August heat.

4. HYDRATE!

5. Download music and get practicing, especially on the warm-ups.

 

  • What parts do you prepare for camp? Good question. The best advice I have for you is to print off all parts for each song and prepare the one that you feel most comfortable in performing. Not everyone can be 1st trumpet (or whatever other section)! We want great players on all parts.

 

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter (@EIUPMB), and sign up for the Band App. A link will be sent to you via e-mail)

Absence Request

Make sure you have reviewed the syllabus!

PMB BANQUET!

More to come later in the season.  The PMB Band Banquet will be held sometime in late November or early December.
