This Week in the Golden Eagle Band (TWIGEB 08/30 – 09/05)

Regular Rehearsals Continue!

The regular marching rehearsal schedule is 7:00am-8:30am Monday through Friday. Please note a couple of important exceptions below:

Monday, Sept 7: No school/No rehearsal
Monday, Oct 12: Stadium Rehearsal 5-9pm – note that there is no school this day.

*it is important that everyone arrives on time everyday. As a reminder, for every minute you are late = 1 lap. Also, tutoring is expected to be done in the afternoons so we can maximize our rehearsal time. With that being said, please pass your classes!

Friday Morning Rehearsals

Attire for Friday morning rehearsals is:

GEB Athletic Shorts
White Shirt
Marching Shoes
By all wearing the same uniform during Friday morning rehearsals, we will be able to clean drill faster as well as get used to marching with marching shoes on the turf!

On this day, we also rehearse with the Eaglettes. This is especially important to note because ALL woodwinds, brass and drumline students must remember to bring their flip folders stuffed with this week’s drill team tune (which happens to be Lips are Movin this week once again). Anyone who forgets his/her flip folder, drill team tune, or attire at this rehearsal will automatically fail inspection for this week, so make sure you remember!

You can always find the “drill team tune” for the week by going to the Official Band Calendar at

Pass-offs… want to try again?

Wind players can come and re-attempt movement I/school song pass-offs for any of the directors after school on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays before 5:30pm. We can’t guarantee availability every day (some days there are meetings, etc), but we’ll do our best to be in our offices between 4:10-5:30pm those days for the next few weeks. If you drop by, we’ll be happy to fire up the click track for you.

In the mean time, want to practice step offs with the click track?

The click track for Mvt. I is now posted in the student area in Charms. In order to log into Charms, visit Your school code is “RichardsonHSB”, and your password for the student area is your ID number. You will be able to find the click track in the “Click Track” folder in the “Handouts & Files” section.
