IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ELEMENT OF A GOOD REHEARSAL. NEITHER THE DIRECTOR NOR THE ENSEMBLE CAN BE CREATIVE IN AN ATMOSPHERE OF CHAOS
- 3 claps = complete silence for instructions.
- Complete silence when the MAESTRO takes the podium.

"This is your largest class. To be productive rules must be followed to have a productive rehearsal and achieve the performance goals of the Akron MS Band."
Mr. Flynn & Mr. Mozee
Be seated with your instrument ready to play at 1:55. DO NOT PLAY!!!!!!You may talk quietly with your stand partner until the bass drum begins rehearsal to warm up the group. "Step By Step" Lesson 1 Unit # will be written on the board.
"No, you may not go to the rest room or get a drink", do this before class. Throw out your gum before taking your seat. If you have a question or concern raise your hand after warm ups. All questions will be answered after warm ups.
Cases under seats except for large instruments. (Trombone, Horn, Tenor/Bari sax Baritone/Tuba)
Do NOT play any other instrument than yours or the one assigned to you. Do NOT visit other sections before rehearsal.
Have a pencil and any other supplies needed for rehearsal at your seat with you.
Store your folders in your lockers. Close your cases and your locker doors.
Prepare for a great rehearsal!!
Great rehearsals make great performances.
