  • Students and Parents,

    The next two weeks are among the busiest we have all year in the SC Band.  Please pay close attention to the information below.

     

    PLAYOFF GAMES AND REGION BAND EVENTS

    Before getting into the schedules below, this is a reminder that playoff games are not optional events for performing members of the marching band.  Almost 2/3 of the band will be auditioning for region band on Saturday morning, and many will be unavailable the following weekend due to the Region Band clinic and concert.  We need all available marching band members performing at every game in order to even play our stand tunes at this point.  If you have a question about your attendance, please email Mr. Mooney immediately.

    POINSETTIA PICKUP, 12/7

    VOLUNTEERS

    We're always looking for parent help, especially on performance days!  There are many, many ways to help with the band - if you're interested in finding out more about volunteer opportunities, email Daisy at volunteers@schsband.org.

     

    PRIVATE LESSONS

    Private lessons are for any student who wants to achieve at a higher level than where they are now.  Whether you're an experienced All-State Band member or a younger player just trying to figure things out, you need lessons to get the most out of your band experience!  If you're interested in private lessons, fill out this form or contact Mr. Mooney at jmooney@alvinisd.net

     

    As always, please let us know if you have any questions.

     

    Thank you,

    Josh Mooney
