1 Upper Merion Area High School Marching Vikings Handbook Student Name

2 May 11, 2016 Dear High School Band Member and Parents, Welcome to the marching season. Our show this year is Upper Merion at the Movies, including music from ET, Harry Potter, Jurassic Park and Star Wars. The recordings for these songs can be found online on at: This handbook covers most of what you will need to know as part of the Marching Vikings. Please review the contents with your parents and keep it available for your reference. I would like to continue to have close communications with you throughout the summer and the school year. Please call or me with your questions and concerns. It will save a lot of time and frustration if we are aware of family activities (such as vacations) that will cause you to be late or absent from any rehearsals or performances. Throughout the summer messages are preferred. Please me to initiate communication with the music parents and myself and with any changes to your contact information. My address is: The high school band room phone is Please leave a message on the machine if there is no answer. On most days throughout the summer I will not be in the band room. Navigate to the UMAHS Band Web Site via the main school district page then bookmark it for the future. The page will be kept up to date. Please note that the marching schedule is included in this handbook (times are tentative). There will be additional rehearsals, performances and schedule adjustments and it is important that you check the web page often for changes. The Upper Merion Music Boosters are a group of parents and friends who work with the students and directors to help make the music program more successful. They would welcome your participation. You will be contacted in the near future regarding meetings. As a member of the marching band you are responsible for attending all rehearsals and performances. It is important that all of you are committed to a successful year. Again, please contact me if you have any questions. All rehearsals will begin and end on time. Your promptness is necessary in order for us to use our time in the most productive manner. Sincerely, Mr. Donald R. Washam Director of Bands Upper Merion Area Senior High School 2

3 Statement of Purpose The goal of the Upper Merion Area High School Instrumental Music Department is to provide the instrumental music student with the opportunity to participate in an outstanding high school band program. With the help and support of the school administration, we endeavor: 1. To help students play to the best of their ability 2. To teach students to read music fluently 3. To assist students in becoming strong and confident musicians 4. To expose students to great music, chosen from a wide variety of styles, time periods, composers and arrangers 5. To provide students with opportunities to perform music for a public audience 6. To develop student music ensembles of the highest quality possible Extra-Curricular Status Marching band is an extra-curricular activity for which students do not receive academic credit. In order to obtain our goals it is necessary for students and parents to understand that all rehearsals and performances are important. There are evening rehearsals, summer band camp, football games, parades, and competitions that are described in this handbook. Being a member of the Marching Vikings requires commitment. When students choose to become members they make that commitment. 3

4 Attendance Policy Students learn many things by participating in a high school marching band program. Some of them are not necessarily about music. It is our goal to help our students learn about commitment, responsibility, dependability, and punctuality in the process of teaching them to play and perform music. It is our desire that students and parents will follow the attendance policy and inform the director of any conflicts as soon as they arise. In order to maintain the high standards set by Upper Merion Area High School and its many successful curricular and extra-curricular programs, the marching band staff will adhere to the following policies on attendance at music functions outside of school: 1. Students are required to attend all after-school rehearsals and performances. 2. Students will be notified at least one month in advance if extra rehearsals and performances are scheduled, unless rescheduling is made necessary by weather-related or school district cancellations. 3. The music department will work closely with the athletic department, student government and any other activity to avoid scheduling conflicts. In the event of a conflict the band staff, faculty, coaches and administration will work out a compromise so that the student is not caught in the middle. Students must help by alerting us of any scheduling conflicts as far in advance as possible. 4. Valid reasons for absence include: A. Illness that keeps the student home from school on the day of or the day after the music event. Please call the band room when this occurs. ( ) B. Medical emergencies, traffic jams etc. If possible, please call the band room and make us aware of the situation. Put the band room phone number in your cell phone. 5. The following are not valid reasons for missing a rehearsal or performance. A. After-school jobs B. Non-school sporting events C. Forgetting to attend D. Vacations scheduled after you have received the band schedule E. Other personal activities F. Lack of transportation - Please ask for assistance, chances are someone could give you a ride. 6. Please look ahead and write the band activity dates on your calendar. Students who know they have conflicts with scheduled music activities should contact the director immediately to try to resolve them. We may be able to come up with a workable solution. 4

5 Band Uniform Guidelines The Upper Merion Marching Vikings will be performing in uniforms purchased just a few years ago. Uniforms will be fitted during a marching band rehearsal. The uniform will be given to you cleaned and pressed. Under no circumstances should any alterations be made or any fabric be cut from any garment. If the uniform requires cleaning during the season (due to spilled drink or food, etc.), the student is responsible for the cleaning expense. Uniforms will be distributed prior to each performance and collected upon return to the school. Band Members are responsible for: Khaki Pants Black Socks Black Gloves Available through the band (Approximate cost $4.00). Black Marching Shoes (Dinkles) Available through the band (Approximate cost $35.00). They must be kept clean and polished. T-Shirt and/or Polo Shirt They will be available through the band. Shorts or Under Amour which will be worn under the uniform. Jeans or any long pant s that extend below the marching pants cannot by worn.

Students will remain in uniform until instructed otherwise. Students will not be permitted to perform with the band if they are not in full uniform. 5

6 Fund Raising The Upper Merion Marching Vikings receives limited funding from the school district. We will hold various fund-raisers throughout the school year. The money raised through these fund-raisers will be used to help offset additional costs. It is strongly encouraged that students fund-raise. The Upper Merion Music Boosters works with the band, orchestra and choir with these fund raising events. Participation in various fundraisers over the year will lighten the students financial obligation and will benefit the organization as a whole. Summer Rehearsals During these rehearsals the music will be rehearsed and marching skills will be developed. The band front, percussion, brass, and woodwind sections will rehearse independently and as an ensemble. All of the following rehearsals will take place at the high school band room from 6:00 until 8:00 PM. If you cannot attend any of the following rehearsals due to vacations please send Mr. Washam an .

Our first game is on August 16th away against Radnor. It has always been our goal to learn most of the show in band camp and that our first performance be a success. The instructors make every effort to develop a show that is both entertaining and challenging. You must be prepared for all kinds of weather in marching band. The following guidelines will be helpful in allowing us to have productive rehearsals. A. Wear loose comfortable clothing B. Wear socks and sneakers C. Wear a hat to keep the sun out of your eyes and off of your head D. Bring a water jug E. Pack some snacks for breaks F. Use sun block G.
