HIGH SCHOOL BAND PROGRAM MEMBERS' 'YOU'RE INSTRUMENTAL' WORKSHOP IS A HIGHLIGHT OF ORLANDO TRIP


Seventy-five students who are part of the high school’s band program are having a fabulous, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sight-read, prepare and record a polished performance of special Disney music in a studio environment as professional musicians, as part of the band program’s trip to Orlando.

The highlight of the trip --- which only takes place every four years --- is Disney's "You're Instrumental” Workshop, where students explored how professional musicians prepare to be their best in any musical performance.

Students learned how to get the most out of rehearsals and discovered how to execute a pitch-perfect performance as they honed their sight-reading skills under the guidance of an experienced Disney teaching artist. The group examined the skills, attitudes and priorities essential to musical excellence. Their special finale was a recording of them performing Disney music, accompanied by footage from a classic Disney animated film.

As part of the trip, students also visited all four Disney parks, Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure and had a day at Melbourne Beach.
