Band - The Pride of Little Dixie

NEW INFORMATION REGARDING THS GRADUATION:  

As of now, THS Graduation is currently scheduled to be on Friday, June 5 at 7:30 pm on the football field. The POLD will play our traditional graduation program: “The National Anthem”, “Pomp & Circumstance”, and “Tishomingo Loyalty”.

Rehearsal schedule for HS Band will be from 9:00-10:30 on the following dates: Tuesday, June 2 Wednesday, June 3; and Thursday, June 4

Senior band members can come to the bandroom on these dates to return any folders, music, or instruments and to pick up awards that would have been given to them at the band banquet.

During these rehearsals, we will also be discussing next year. Anyone interested in being part of next year’s color guard needs to contact Mr. Patterson.

On Friday, June 5, the band will need to be at the bandroom at 6:00 pm to set up for graduation. STUDENTS: PLEASE GET THIS INFORMATION OUT TO CURRENT POLD MEMBERS!!!

Important Message from Mr. Patterson:

Monday, March 30, 2020

In this troubling time, extra-curricular activities are not feasible and I, as a band director, cannot assign specific work for students.

However, as a mentor, Daddy, and musician, I can give you some great advice:

Parents, students, fellow humans: Take some time…Enjoy the slow…Embrace your families….

Then…

Break up the monotony of your day by spending time away from social media learning something new – “Music” – it’s not hard to do – requires zero talent to start.  Learn to read music, learn some new scales, learn how chords work, study music theory, sing, play an instrument – a little everyday will go a long way.

God Bless,

Mr. P
