Colorguard Summer Session

Grades: 9-12

The Colorguard Summer Session is the recommended prerequisite for the SMHS 2021-2022 Fall and Winter Colorguard and is part of the fall Titan Marching Band & Colorguard. Tryouts are TBA. Expect it towards the end of the school year. Scheduling for this course will be different compared to previous years: it will be more concentrated over a shorter time frame with a pre-Band Camp refresher. This will allow students and families to have more flexibility during the summer while providing an even higher number of hours of instruction in total. Extra practice will be at the discretion of Colorguard student leadership.

 

Band camp (July 26-July 30 & August 2-6, from 1:00 to 9:00 p.m) is separate from this course and is a mandatory requirement along with zero period Marching Band class (beginning of school through mid-November). 

 

Instruction will be taught by professional movement technicians.  Summer course credit is not applicable. For questions, contact SMHS Music Director Terry Leve at TLeve@smusd.us.
