Re: Region Band Selections
It is a big deal. And I do have multiple kids make region band. And it's rather presumptuous to think that local bands can't perform music at the same level as a region band or is it because you are "teaching" them?
I feel like it's a little lazy on the part of the clinician. Please expand your taste in music.
In some cases, this will be the ONLY time this kid plays in a band capable of performing that level/selection of piece.
Unless you have 30+ kids make the region band, just program it again. It's not a big deal They worked on it for two to three days.
Can we please stop selecting pieces on the PML for region band?????
It has happened multiple times that I have pre-selected my UIL tunes and then the region clinician has pick one of my pieces for the concert. I know other directors get annoyed by this as well.
I really don't want my kids playing it again. Now I have to find a piece that fits my band all over again.
There are plenty of amazing pieces that are not on the PML that clinicians can select. Please Please Please!
