Frequently AskedReporting an Absence: For marching band, see AAMB handbook. To report an absence from a concert band you must fill out a blue card. These cards can be found in the Band Office as well as both band rooms. Once you fill out the card, you turn it into the mailbox of the director of band that you are missing. Those mailboxes are located in the band office, Elliot Room 135, in the right corner cabinet.
Signing up for a Practice Room: In the band office, Elliott Room 135, there is a binder that holds schedules for all the available practice facilities. You simply look at the desired room, and time you wish to practice, and write in your name to reserve the space. Reservations are accepted on a first-come basis. Note: Availability of the rooms change weekly and the applied music practice room is only open to those in applied music and have lessons in that room.
Where are Practice Rooms located: Practice Room B is located outside of Room 30 (across from the Coke machine). The numbered practice rooms are the dressing rooms located on Elliott's second floor, one floor above the Green Room. Use the stairway by the Coke machine to access them.
To check out an office key (Supply, Ops, Clothing, RR/Outreach, etc.): Come to the Band Office, Elliott 135, and fill out the appropriate form on the desk clipboard, and get the key from Pat Newton . It is courteous to return the key as quickly as possible. Keys must be returned the same day unless permission is asked to keep them longer.
Signing up for Applied Music: Private lessons are available for percussion, guitar, piano and chamber music. You can choose eight lessons per semester, and instructors come to Elliott to teach. Lesson times are arranged individually with each student. Lessons can be taken for credit (requiring a recital performance at the end of the semester) or strictly for personal growth. Contact Professor Andy King for sign up forms or for more information. (For those wishing to take lesson on a wind or string instrument, you may obtain a list of local teachers whom you can contact for more information.)

Starting the 1st of November or the 1st of April, stop by the Band Office, Elliott 135, and pick up a ticket from Pat Newton . Tickets can be purchased for $15 per ticket for non-band friends and family.
