: Hey all!
: Make sure you check the PML for CHANGES to
: pieces! Long standing 1s are now 2s,
: changing a lot of those "go-to"
: I hope you haven't given out a 2 (now)
: thinking it was a 1, and once you are
: putting in entries find out that there is
: not a possibility of advancement (if you
: attend TSSEC).
: Steps onto soapbox....
: As a percussionist, I am frustrated that so
: many playable ensembles for MANY SMALL
: SCHOOLS have been relegated to the class 2
: list now, being replaced with ensembles that
: call for equipment that MANY of us do not
: have. Many of us are lucky to have a
: xylophone and set of bells, much less 3
: marimbas and much of the equipment needed
: for many of the class 1 ensembles now. Other
: mixed ww and brass ensembles have been move,
: Judges may not change from year to year and
: get tired of hearing those pieces, but the
: students are changing! It's new to
: THEM...isn't that for whom we are here???
