Congratulations to the following ladies and gentlemen on making the 2016-2017 Fall Color Guard! Thank you to everyone who attended the audition/clinic! We look forward to getting to work at the June Camp.
We invite anyone interested to audition for the Flower Mound Colorguard. The group is comprised of students in grades 9-12 at Flower Mound High School and Flower Mound 9th grade campus. Incoming 9th graders are welcome to audition. During the audition clinics you will work on dance choreography and learn the basics on the equipment. Plan on wearing clothing that is comfortable to move in (no jeans) and all black. Do not worry if you do not have any experience spinning a flag; we will teach you what you need to know! If you have any other questions, please contact us.
The Flower Mound High School Colorguard will host a Junior Guard Spin Clinic on Saturday, May 14th from 9am-12pm in the Flower Mound High School Gym for kindergarten-aged to 8th grade students. Registration is $45 and includes fun-filled instruction of basic Colorguard skills, snacks, and a t-shirt. Register online and bring in your registration fee the day of the clinic. The registration table will open at 8:30am. Checks should be written out to "Flower Mound Band Boosters." New registrations will be accepted the day of the spin clinic, but t-shirts are not guaranteed.
The Band Memory Book is now on sale throughout the month of April! Go to www.fmhsband.picaboo.com to place your order and personalize 4 pages and a cover! Hard cover is $40, soft cover is $30 and electronic copy is $10. Books will be delivered the last week of school.
The audition music for placement in the Fall 2016 concert ensembles is now available to download. Please select your instrument below to download the appropriate packet. The results of this audition will place each student in a band class for next Fall. Placement for one of the two marching bands (Competition or Jaguar) will be decided based upon this audition and a movement/marching assessment during marching sessions. We have members of both marching bands in all band classes. If you have trouble accessing the audition music, please contact us. Good luck!
A note about percussion auditions:
All percussionists are placed in the same class in the fall, so auditions for percussionists are to determine their placement in the Fall drumline. We will have several “Drumline Audition Clinics" where students will receive music, info, and instruction on how to prepare for the individual audition on 4/26. Students will also be evaluated in a group playing environment. We will have clinicians in to work with the students and separated into instrument groupings based on their specialties (I.e. Snare, Quad, Bass, and Front Ensemble). Students may feel free to come and go between instrument sections based on what they want to learn and try out for. These clinics are not required and will not affect the students' grades however, the better attendance a student has the more prepared they will likely be for their drumline audition. Best of luck!
All clinics are from 4:30-7:00 p.m.
