In addition, we hope that you find your time in band to be enjoyable, challenging, and rewarding as we work hard to be our best! As we look ahead, it is necessary to provide basic information about how the band operates. This handbook has been prepared so that you and your parent/guardians will know the requirements, expectations, and procedures of our cooperative group. Please be aware that, because we are a group that depends on each of its members for success, it is absolutely necessary that each band member follows the procedures and expectations that this handbook discusses.

It is the purpose of the Chaminade College Preparatory instrumental music program to teach an application of Music both inside and outside of the school walls. Chaminade is devoted not only to developing the skills of the musicians; but also developing teamwork and family within the Characteristics of a Marianist Education. We wish to inspire students to discover what music can mean to them outside of the classroom. While we strive to create a moment within the musical performance, our goal is to discover what that moment can mean beyond the performance.
Each of the expectations below promote RESPECT and RESPONSIBILITY. Please adhere to them:
Because our group can function at full strength only when all members are present, all members of the Wind Ensemble are expected to attend ALL scheduled events (performances and rehearsals). You are receiving a grade and a Fine Arts credit toward graduation for completing this class. Regardless of the time of day this course meets, it is still a class. You CANNOT participate if you are NOT PRESENT. We only meet twice a week. Here are specific attendance policies:
***While we cannot anticipate all possible conflicts which may arise, the spirit of our attendance expectation is that all students attend all band events unless absolutely impossible. In the event of difficult choices/situations, please communicate with the director well in advance.***
Band grades will be reported as A, B, C, D, or F, with + or – indicated as necessary. The general policies and procedures of evaluation of Chaminade College Prep shall be followed. The specific objectives and criteria on which the letter grades are based appear below.
Grades will be determined based on the following:
