Everyone Is Selling Ads!

Hey Band! (hey, what??)

As we talked about at the end of pep on Friday, we have an unanticipated expense that has come up in getting ready for RhythmFest, so to offset the cost, we need EVERY. SINGLE. BAND. MEMBER. to sell $20 worth of ads for the RhythmFest program. Here's a sample script for you to follow, when you talk to people at businesses etc about purchasing an ad:

Hi! I'm with the Tigard High Band program, and we are hosting a music festival competition on February 2. We hand out programs to everyone who comes, and I am hoping you would consider buying an ad in our program. It will be seen by over 1000 people from our area. Ad prices are very reasonable, starting with a business card size for only $20. (Show them the form, and make sure they see the information on how to submit their ad copy)

(If they say yes, say) Thank you so much! (Make sure they take a copy of the ad form)

If they say no, say) Thank you for taking time to talk with me. Have a nice day.

Let's do this!!

PS - Your parents can help too!

MORE WDL Try-It-Outs!

Here comes the next WDL Try-It-Out opportunity - Monday December 3, 4-6pm. Come to the Band Room and work with Dylan, Mike, and Krystle and see what it's all about.

"But McKee - I'm a horn player and I don't know how to hit things with sticks!"

That's OK - we have a couple of options for you:
  • We'll teach you how to be a percussionist - and you'll become a better horn player through the process
  • <> (new this year) we might add you to the ensemble WITH YOUR HORN!! Intrigued? Come Monday and discover the possibilities!

WDL Try-It-Outs!

Hey Band! (hey, what??)

Every thought about how much fun it would be to do the whole marching thing, but indoors?? Winter Drumline just might be your thing! Our first WDL Try-It-Out will be Monday November 26, at 4pm in the THS Band Room. Mike and Krystle will be there and people will be trying things out (oh, you see what we did there). Never played percussion before? That's OK - we'll teach you!

Can't make it this week? No worries - more Try-It-Out days to come, in the near future!
