2020 Percussion and Color Guard Camp

Hello!

 

I am excited to announce that we will be conducting a percussion and color guard camp beginning on July 27th through August 7th, Monday through Friday from 8 am to 1 pm.

 

The goal of the camp is to work on both fundamentals and for each group to perform a show at the end of the camp. Front ensemble, color guard, and drumline will be practicing independently on different performances for the entirety of the camp. The plan is for drumline to continue working on our winter percussion show, front ensemble to explore and perform several large percussion ensemble pieces, and for color guard to choreograph and perform their own standalone performance. This offers us the opportunity to improve and develop our performers in a self contained camp that would be possible to roll into a combined extracurricular activity during the school year if we were allowed to by the school and the county. 

 

The camp will be open to any student who wishes to participate, new students and experienced students alike.. If you are already an instrumentalist who is intrigued by drumline please come! If you are a clarinet player who wants to join color guard, we want you there. If you are a percussionist and want to explore the wonderful world of large percussion ensembles this is your opportunity!

 

For safety reasons it is important that our percussionists bring their own sticks and mallets. However, if you dont have these, the school will provide them. Students will not be allowed to share materials. Students and instructors must wear masks at all times, and 6 feet of distance must be maintained between all students at all times.If your student forgets their mask, we will provide one. Students should wear athletic clothing and bring plenty of water and sunblock as this camp will take place outside.

 

If your student is feeling ill or running a fever they should be kept home.

 

A link to a google form to sign up is attached below as well as a copy of all of CVCHS’s summer activity guidelines. Please fill out the google form so we have an idea as to who to expect on Monday.

 

I look forward to seeing you there!

Important Update Regarding 2020-2021 Marching Band

 

Good evening,

 

Today the Governor's office came out with new guidelines as to the reopening of schools. One of the guidelines restricted band practice and performance specifically:

 

“Activities where there is increased likelihood for transmission from contaminated exhaled droplets such as band and choir practice and performances are not permitted.”

 

Because of these new guidelines we will be canceling all marching band activities for this season.

 

We are looking into the possibility of hosting a percussion and colorguard camp. These activities would not be impacted by the current guidelines because they are not “Activities where there is increased likelihood for transmission from contaminated exhaled droplets.” This camp would be available to all students interested in learning percussion or guard, but it will take some time to plan. The earliest we could begin would be the 27th, please stay tuned for more information.

 

I would like to reassure you about this school year. While music education is going to look different nation wide, there will be ample opportunity for individual musical growth at Clayton Valley. We will focus on building individual technical skills, along with studying music history, theory, and appreciation. For advanced students there are numerous state and national solo competitions which you will have the opportunity to enter.

 

Finally, I think it is important to note that there is no “taking a break” from being a musician. An entire year off would cause abilities to atrophy quickly, and if your child did come back to music it would take them a long time to get back to where they were. I promise you that I will do everything I can to make sure that this year is a rewarding and worthwhile musical experience.
