hello everyone!  i hope you are doing well!  (frank, if it is in your heart…can you share this badboy?!)  I AM DOING FINE – THANKS!

i am going to start working on some school related things today – shocker.

Varsity Band:

you should be getting an e-mail from me today.  if you do not, please e-mail me!

music should be in the google drive and an updated repertoire list should be listed as well.

drumline needs to check the google drive for music and recordings.  i will put some videos up by the end of the week.

please let me know if you have any questions.  if you are able to work a little bit everyday you will be much better off than slamming a bunch in at the end.

hope to see you saturday july 9th at 1 pm.  courts of devry.

(still need some samba drummers if people are down, e-mail me personally)

if you missed the nani concert your make-up will be a 3-page typed paper discussing the entire life of Fela Kuti.  It will be due wednesday (6/8).  12 point font.  be sure to discuss his most popular record, his entire scope of influence, and his impact of being a multi-instrumentalist.

this is my mood right now with summer!

in case you are still reading this:

1st period – in the auditorium

2nd period – in the auditorium no instruments

4th period – in the auditorium with instruments

5th period – in the auditorium with instruments

6th period – outside!
