Bring a positive attitude.
Winning is an attitude, not a placement.
We accept whatever the judges have to say then go work on those areas that need fixing.
You are a representative of the entire Greer community and must act accordingly.
You are to treat each and every band with the up most respect.
We will clap and support each band that takes the field that day. This is about Music Education; therefore, we are all winners.
Please review the conduct code for competitions on the website.
The only thing we can control is ourselves. Remember that adjudicating is a subjective activity. It is only the opinion of one individual as they see us that day.
Today is going to be your day. Prepare to have the best run of the year thus far!!! You have been working toward this day since July 27th and now it is time to put it all together. It is time to play all the right notes, march with a purpose and erase all timing and execution errors. The staff, parents and school believe in you. BELIEVE IN EACH OTHER!!!!! It is now time to demonstrate all the skills you have learned over the past weeks to a captive audience.
Most important concept of all: HAVE FUN PERFORMING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TODAY IS GOING TO BE YOUR DAY!!!
Parents, please do not park in front of the bandroom once we return to the school. This will block our equipment and buses from having a clear path to the band room. Please use the marked parking spaces.
“IT IS ALL ABOUT THE “G”!!!
