Organization is the Key to Success
Band Camp is the most important week of the marching band season. It not only “sets the tone” for the marching season, but for the entire school year of band activities.
Set specific goals for the week or two of Band Camp. Possible goals:
Fundamentals of music and movement
Learn the Opener drill
Learn all of the show music
Learn the school and patriotic songs
I always enjoyed band camp because it was the beginning of a new season, time to get to know the new students, a chance to focus on only the band and kids and it is a joy to watch the new band form its own personality.
