Ensemble Placement Results
Parents and students, please be supportive of the audition process by assisting your child with coping with the results. There is no person that ever received every group placement, job, award, etc. that he/she auditioned/interviewed for. Please understand that the true reward is improvement through the process. (What if the students practiced this much regularly?) So many of the students improved through this process and it was such a joy to listen to them be successful.
As the students do, we take these auditions very seriously and we think very carefully about every single student’s placement. Our goal is for the band program, each group, and each student to be successful. We place the students in the group that fits their individual talents. We are not “out to get” anyone but value every single student’s contribution to our band program. With that being said, it is always sad to hear parents and students say that if their child doesn’t make the ensemble they desire, they are quitting. Please assist with continuing the learning process by encouraging your child to stick it out and come back to the next audition fighting.
Student will not be permitted to re-audition as placements are final. We will be more than happy to speak directly with students regarding ways to improve, but we will not discuss with anyone anything related to quitting, changing ensembles, or opinions on where they should be placed.
BAND IS A YEAR LONG CLASS. Students are required to participate for the full year. Please reference the block scheduling information located in the handbook that may be found on the band website. There is information also on how to ensure students are in band both semesters for all four years of high school. Students that do not audition were automatically placed in the Concert Band.
