Students who fail to meet attendance requirements are subject to expulsion from the ensemble and will forfeit tuition and fees. Commitment Instrumentalists who have been accepted into Harmony Winds must submit a registration form with appropriate tuition and fees before the first rehearsal. The submission of a signed registration form with tuition and fees indicates agreement to the calendar and attendance policy listed in this handbook. It also indicates that the student and his/her parents have read the handbook, looked at the yearly calendar, and are willing to make a commitment to the organization for the coming year. A student who does not fulfill his/her commitment to the organization may jeopardize current and future membership in the organization. Attendance Policy Attendance and active participation at all rehearsals and classes is crucial to the success of any organization. It is expected that all members will demonstrate responsibility, punctuality, and dependability as part of their commitment to the organization. If a student knows that he/she will have to be absent from a rehearsal or class, an absence form on Page 6 must be completed and turned in to the manager. Excessive absence (more than twice per semester) is not acceptable and may result in dismissal without refund for tuition and fees. In the case of illness, members are expected to call and leave a message for the Harmony Winds manager ( ) or the manager at At the next rehearsal or class, the student must fill out an absence form and turn it in to the manager. 3

6 Withdrawal Policy Students who submit written notice to the Registrar prior to the second rehearsal are eligible for a refund on tuition.

Expectations Members of Harmony Winds are expected to attend all designated rehearsal and performance dates listed on the Calendar. If additional rehearsals and/or performances are required, they will be communicated well in advance. Members are not expected to attend rehearsals on religious holidays or rehearsals that are in conflict with school music performances. Rehearsals and performances that conflict with school music performances must be communicated in writing to the Harmony manager as early as possible. Members who miss more than two rehearsals before a concert may be asked not to perform. Members who miss performances (except in the case of illness or family emergency) will not be considered for future membership. Members are responsible for all music or supplies checked out to them and must pay for anything that is lost or damaged. Members are expected to demonstrate a high level of self-discipline, maturity, and professionalism at all times. They are expected to be courteous, polite, and respectful of other instrumentalists and adults. Members who cannot abide by these expectations will be dismissed from the organization. Percussionist Expectations Percussionists are expected to help set up and remove percussion equipment prior to and following every rehearsal and performance. Percussionists must arrive at least 20 minutes early and plan to stay at least 20 minutes late for every rehearsal and performance to allot time for care of equipment. Rehearsal Expectations Instrumentalists must plan to be in place and ready to begin with all the music and materials at least 15 minutes before each rehearsal. Each instrumentalist must always keep a sharpened pencil in his/her folder. Instrumentalists should not ask to be excused to visit the restroom or water fountain unless it is an emergency. Drinks and restroom trips should be taken care of before rehearsal. Instrumentalists should be attentive to all directions and follow them quickly. All communication with the directors and managers should occur before or after rehearsals or at a designated break. Instrumentalists are responsible for knowing assigned music when they come to a rehearsal. Food and beverages (except for water) may not be consumed during rehearsals. Folders should be kept neat and organized. A calendar should be kept in the folder at all times. Cellphones and other handheld devices may be brought to rehearsals and concerts but must be turned off prior to the start of the rehearsal or performance.
