It's now your responsiblity to:

  • Work on this stuff at home - use a metronome when you practice!!!!!
  • Come to reheasals prepared!
  • Have a determined attitude and work to a high standard!
  • Make sure with the Wednesday rehearsals that you turn up by 6pm, get your equipment ready, do any necessary repairs, set you carriers/stands AND BE READY TO GO AT 6:30PM!
  • Don't be late back from breaks!
  • For breaks set the drums/pit up in some sort of formation - take pride in the equipment
  • Please don't allow other members to play the instruments during break-time
