Rehearsal Tips

Posted: July 24, 2015

STAY HYDRATED -   Replacing fluids lost during outdoor activity is paramount to staying healthy and to maintain concentration and abilities.  A personal water bottle would be helpful.

PROTECT YOURSELF FROM THE SUN - Wearing a hat, sunscreen and light weight clothing that limits the skins exposure to the sun is important for immediate & long term health.

WEAR COMFORTABLE / SUPPORTIVE SNEAKERS - Most our early season rehearsals will be held in the parking lot.  Wearing something that has some support and cushion will be important, especially during 9 hour band camp days.

BUG SPRAY - As the sun sets, the mosquitos attack.  Bug spray will help ensure the last 45 minutes of rehearsal be productive.

About Us

The East Syracuse Minoa Spartan Marching Band, High School and Middle School Winter Guards and Winter Percussion Ensemble consists of students in grades 6 through 12. The program's existence enables members to become better performers and experience the benefits of hard work, dedication, and perseverance. It is the responsibility of each member to work diligently toward raising the ensembles level of excellence. To achieve this goal, ensemble members are expected to participate in activities to the fullest degree and make the most of every rehearsal moment. Participation in the activities that help foster and support the organization is also a rewarding experience. Achieving these goals has allowed all of the ESM Marching Ensembles to enjoy a rich and proud history.
