EMR Calendar

One of the things on my summer list of to dos was the EMR calendar. It listed all the early morning sectionals, Jazz Band, and combined rehearsals for the upcoming year (See example below). I used it to create the EMR and Playing Test lists for each band.

Video Disclaimer

The attached videos are not perfect examples of how each tune should be played. They are recordings of junior high students, some of whom have had their instruments for only a few months. Also, they are not professional recordings. They were taken by band parents using home equipment and naturally focusing on their own children.

I include them for two reasons: (1) To give you an idea of what the arrangements are like, and (2) To illustrate the kind of performance you can expect from your junior high students.
