FAQ

1. Can I take instrumental music and Spanish?

YES! Please remember that Spanish is a two year course and it takes BOTH years to complete Spanish 1 as opposed to high school where its done in one year. Spanish 1 will also not appear on your high school transcripts.

 

2. Can I do Orchestra and Colorguard?

Yes!

 

3. How and when do I audition for the jazz bands? 

Jazz auditions are twice a year: The first week of school and the week before winter break. For the audition you will need to prepare a scale, a song/piece/tune/etude that will show how well you can play, and sight-reading. Remember, this is your time to show off!

 

4. I do not feel like I am a very good player, can I still be in band    or orchestra?

Yes! The difference between elementary school and middle school is HUGE. At Tuffree, we get to play every day as opposed to twice a week. 

 

5. Do I need to own an instrument to join the band or orchestra?

No! We have rental instruments that you can use during your two year in the program! 

 

6. Do I have to be in band or orchestra to be in jazz band?

Yes, this is a district policy.

 

7. Can I be in band and colorguard?

Yes! We have had many students do this in the past. During the fall marching season, you will be in the band and during the spring semester, you will be able to do band and Winterguard. 

 

8. Does band have zero periods?

Yes! We have three band classes and a percussion class that rehearse during the regular school day. Because we rehearse separately and perform together, zero period rehearsals allow the entire group to practice as a whole. Due to it's importance in the process, zero periods are mandatory and attendance will be taken. 

 

9. Why do we ask for a Participation Donation?

It takes many resources to run our quality music programs and a little effort goes a long way to earn money for it. As a non-profit organization, the Friends of Tuffree Music Booster Club depends on the generosity of donors to help cover our operating costs. Items such as sheet music, instruments, music stands, additional coaching, transportation fees, repairs, and other teaching tools used on a daily basis are not funded by our State. We thank you in advance for any support you can provide. We are a non-profit 501c(3) organization. Your contribution may be deductible for income tax purposes.
