Flute
The flute is the smallest of the beginner instruments.  It is a very popular selection each year, but only a small portion of those wishing to play flute will be selected.
 

Physical Characteristics
Flute players should have a slight “frown” to the upper lip with NO tear drop shape in the middle.  Flute tones are produced by being able to focus an extremely small airstream to an exact location on the tone hole. The tear-drop-shaped lip will make it difficult to direct the air so precisely.  Flute players should also have agile fingers for moving this multi-keyed instrument through a fast musical passage.  Students with extreme overbites (receded jaw) should avoid choosing flute as this makes it difficult to produce quality sounds.
 

Other Considerations
Students with double-jointed fingers should avoid selecting flute as double-jointedness can cause lack of agility in the fingers.

RHS Cluster Fall Rally

Optional Performance Opportunity. Due to BISD Band Fest being canceled for this year, we have organized a Cluster Performance at the FAAC. This performance is for Honors and Concert Band (7th/8th grade) students only, although beginners (6th grade) and their families are highly encouraged to attend this event as an audience member. We will offer extra credit to anyone that attends the performance or as an audience member. 

These procedures and policies are set by BISD to ensure student, family, and friend safety:

  • Masks required for all students and family/friend guest attendees

  • We encourage all people to bring their own hand sanitizers AND we will have sanitizer stations available, as well

  • Stadium seats will be marked to assist with guest attendees maintaining 6 feet apart

  • Stadium seat capacity is 980 people – families may sit together but must remain 6 feet away from other guests

  • No adults will be allowed on the turf at any point

  • When leaving, audience members will be released by section to assist with distance protocols, please wait for your section to be released before leaving the stands

  • Students will be released immediately at the conclusion of the event and will go directly to the parking lot to meet their guardians and go home

RAAB and school officials will be stationed at the gated entrance reminding and enforcing all attendees to wear masks.

Here is the schedule for this event. 

  • 5:30 pm - all Honors and Concert Band members arrive at the FAAC. 

    • Enter through the West side of the stadium (by the tennis courts). Look for an NRMS Band Director to help guide you when you arrive 

  • 6:00 pm - Rehearsal with RHS and North Ridge Begins 

    • All students will be spaced out appropriately on the football field. 

  • 7:00 pm -  Performance begins. 

  • 7:45 pm - Performance is over. 

    • Every student needs to have an adult in the audience so everyone can go home immediately after the performance.
