Thrifty Thought of the Day
If nothing else, I will try to post a "thrifty though of the day". Today's thrifty thought...occasionally go shopping in your own band library. A lot of band programs don't have a lot of money to purchase new music anyway, but I really encourage folks with older music libraries to just sit down and look through things and even just sight read stuff that you don't know at all. We did this the other day in Wind Ensemble. We played an older piece called Jamaican Folk Suite (not to be confused with Jamaican Folk Dance Suite, which I love). We read it and its a going to make a great little piece for our freshman at the spring concert...best part....its free!
