will be utilized when and where necessary.
A student will be expected to rehearse a given passage until they
are musically fluent on a given passage or selection. [this is true
either in SB or in FTGPB]. The purpose of these PC's in not punitive in nature - but
to foster an enhanced sense of responsibility on the part of each Band
of Band Scholars are assumed to be good.
If disruptive attitudes are displayed in rehearsal or performance
setting (i.e. talking, chewing gum, general disruptions - particularly if the humor is bad)
the Band Scholar's
grade will be lowered, the Band Scholar might receive a failing grade for
the semester or expulsion [in extreme cases] might occur.
It is our continuing goal to ensure the quality of our Tiger Bands
[Symphonic Band & "Fighting Tiger Grrr...Pep Band"]
and this requires us to work together and leave all
"attitudes" and "egos" at the door.
is expected to be in keeping with the historic spirit, mission and intent
of Georgetown College and its "Student Code of Conduct", as our
Band Scholars and our Tiger Bands represent not only the Music Department
but the entire Campus Community. It is essential that Band Scholars always
choose the "higher
in all things - and treat everyone and everything in a respectful and
mature fashion. Our "Five-Fold
should serve as your guide and in all things you should be respectful of
yourself, respectful of other Band Scholars, respectful of the tradition
of our Tiger Bands and respectful of Georgetown College.
"The Magic Words" should be a regular part of any Band Scholar's vocabulary. I become more convinced with each passing year - that basic decency and courtesy - are oft-overlooked in modern society and something to which we need to "tend shop". Therefore, I think it is impossible to say the magic words too often - and know and trust that during the course of this academic year that I will oft-hear you say ... Please, Thank-You, Yes Sir, No Ma'am, etc.. If you tend to be weak in this area - it is a good time to "get onboard".
