Hello All Steel Drummers! This e mail is regarding registration for next year
ALL Students should sign up for Steel Drum 1 (even if you are currently in Steel Drum 2). I will personally go through the students signed up for the classes and place them in the correct course after Steel Drum 2 auditions take place in April. See below:
Any steel drum student who was in Steel Drum 1 will automatically be placed into Steel Drum 1.5, without an audition. (It will, however, still read as Steel Drum 1 on the schedule, but the class will be made up of only those students who have already taken the course). If a student who was in 1.5 auditions for Steel Drum 2, and doesn’t make the ensemble, he or she will continue to play in 1.5.
If a student from either Steel Drum 1 or 1.5 auditions and MAKES Steel Drum 2, he or she must still play in Steel Drum 1.5 in the fall term because there is a great deal of music theory needed for Steel Drum 2 AND the extra pan time is required to play at the level Steel Drum 2 is currently playing.
Steel Drum 2 auditions will be held April 5, 7, 11, and 14 after school.
Students Currently in Steel Drum 2 will re-audition in April, during class, to maintain their place in the ensemble. These students will only be placed in Steel Drum 2 for the Spring Term of 2017.
