1. Soloists
    1. Tune with your tuner before you play or seek help from me (I will try to make it to everyone if I can).  
    2. The judge needs a copy of your music with measures numbered. Take care of this BEFORE the day of the event.
  2. Ensembles
    1. Tune your instruments BEFORE you go in to perform.
  3. You have time this week for help. Take advantage of it!!
  4. Dress nicely. This is a professional event that calls on you to dress appropriately.  
  5. Be on time.
  6. LJHS (Monday, April 3 at 6 pm)  When you arrive check in to the band room for warmup. The events will be held in the choir room. The audience will sit in the risers.
  7. LHS (Wednesday, April 5 at 3:30 pm) When you arrive check into the choir room for warmup. You will need to have secured your instruments before 3:30; the band room will not be available for walking through to get them.
  8. Parents, relatives, friends, and others are welcome to attend!
  9. About 30 minutes before your performance time start your warmup.  Go through some of the tough spots, but don’t go through the entire piece or wear yourself out.  Whatever you do, DON’T OVER PLAY.  About 5 minutes before your time head to the performance room.  
  10.     10.Once your time arrives all the nerves, jitters, and panic attacks won’t help.  Just come into the room, do your best, HAVE FUN, and play M U S I C A L L Y! 
  11.     11.Your rating will be posted in the hallway.  No matter what is posted you are expected to act appropriately. A I (Superior) means you received the best rating possible, a II (Excellent) means you were awesome but have a couple little things to fix, and a III (Good) means you have a couple major things to fix but show fantastic potential as a musician.  IV (Fair) and V (Poor) would be not-so-good ratings that would be unlikely for you to get if you know your music.  
  12. I will also have a sheet that the judge wrote on with comments and an explanation of your rating.
  13. If anyone needs anything just ask.  You’re going to do great! Relax and enjoy the day, and learn!
