Hey Band!

I know that there are so many unknowns right now in regards to concerts, summer rehearsals, assignments, etc.  Please know that I understand that we need to keep the health and safety of our community as our top priority.  We also need to use this time at home to keep improving ourselves.  It can be extremely challenging when stuck at home (with no soundproof practice rooms) to continue our daily practice habits.  I encourage you to keep finding that time to work on your craft.  Use this time to find the music that you are passionate about. Use this time to dig into the method and technique books.  It should be our goal that all of us come out of quarantine as better musicians than when we went in.  Keep grinding band, and we will play again together before you know it!
