Re: Looking ahead to April
there are several new grade .5 pieces on the grade 1 list. there are many grade .5 marches that you can choose from. You have many months to prepare this group for uil. reach out to other area directors, invest in a mentor teacher relationship, and work fundamentals and ensemble techniques now. its well within your grasp to succeed. switch one of the altos to bari, or a trombone to tuba if you really feel you need to, but a judge worth their salt will see that you are without a tuba and judge what they hear and see on stage. good luck to you.
