Hello all Bandmasters !
We are only days away from our annual gathering and I am excited about hanging out with you
all at the Gaylord. It looks like a great Conference, full of music and activities to enhance our
lives of education through music.
I have attached the agenda for our TBA meeting on Friday. You should have received my
earlier mail which included our Assessment Instruments for your viewing. If you have not
taken the opportunity to look at these, please do as we will quickly discuss the possible need to
edit some or all in the very near future.
We will also get our first look at the Grade 1 Music List for our Concert Assessment. A great
deal of work and research has gone into this implementation and will complete our Tennessee
Music List with all grades accountable. This list will become active immediately and be
managed by our normal procedures used in all other grades.
During this 11:00am meeting, will distribute the TBA Student Certificates for your All State
performers. Please make an effort to pick these up at this time.
Finally, thanks to all that have given so much to ensure this conference will be one of the best
ever. Countless hours of planning and execution have been selflessly given by so many. I am
deeply in your debt for your energy and guidance and I am honored to be just a part of this
Safe travels and I look forward to seeing you later in the week.
