Update on DCI Trip For This Saturday

Please check the list at the bottom of this post to make sure your name is on the list of who is going!

TRIP – We are going to share a charter bus with Gladwin to take a trip down to Troy, MI for the Legends Drum Corp Invitational (More info about that specific show here)

TRAVEL DETAILS – We are going to get on the charter bus at the ride share parking lot on M18 and US10 (one exit past Coleman). This will save us from driving all the way to Gladwin. But that does mean you will need to share rides over to that parking lot and back. I am putting the final touches on who is riding in which car to and from Farwell. Check back soon for that info or if you already have definite plans let me know!

PRICE – $28 will cover your ticket and the bus ride. You will need money for supper (I would assume at the stadium concessions or better yet you could bring a sack supper! I’m sure they won’t allow you to bring food into the stadium but the bus will be close)

TIME SCHEDULE: (As best as we can get right now – check back for more updates)

  • Leave the Ride Share Parking Lot – Late Morning to Early Afternoon (Depends on what time rehearsal is)
  • Watch Legends Rehearsal
  • 5:00 PM – Gates Open
  • 7:00 PM – Show Starts
  • 9:30-10 – Leave Troy
  • Mid-Nightish arrive back at Ride-share
  • 12:30ish – back to Farwell High School

minim by Livid Instruments is Coming Soon!

headline-Livid-Minim-revealed

We have had a slew of new musical making opportunities over the past five year what with the introduction of iPad and other new controllers like the QuNeo.

July 29, 2015 another new device is showing up and Ask Audio has the introductory scoop on it.

Here is what I saw that catches my eye – 1)It’s wireless (Thank you!) Now, let’s just hope that means bluetooth 4! 2)The price for the kickstarter looks like it may well be under $100 which puts this well into the affordable category! 3)Now, if this is bluetooth 4 that may also mean multiple controllers could control the same device!

Take a minute…

Think about it…

Is it becoming clear what this could do to help out making electronic music in the classroom?

We will have to see on the 29th!

DCI Show on August 1st To Troy With Gladwin

Here are the details as far as we can plan for right now….

TRIP – We are going to share a charter bus with Gladwin to take a trip down to Troy, MI for the Legends Drum Corp Invitational (More info about that specific show here)

TRAVEL DETAILS – We are going to get on the charter bus at the ride share parking lot on M18 and US10 (one exit past Coleman). This will save us from driving all the way to Gladwin. But that does mean you will need to share rides over to that parking lot and back. If you are willing to take a couple of extra kids from Farwell to the ride share lot please let Mr. Shimmons know.

PRICE – $28 will cover your ticket and the bus ride. You will need money for supper (I would assume at the stadium concessions or better yet you could bring a sack supper! I’m sure they won’t allow you to bring food into the stadium but the bus will be close)

*I would like to get your money for the trip by this Friday. Color Guard will be having rehearsal from 3:30 – 5 those two nights so you could bring your money in an envelope properly labeled to Kelsey during that time frame. Or you could drop off the payment to my house. If that doesn’t work for you message me!*

TIME SCHEDULE: (As best as we can get right now – check back for more updates)

  • Leave the Ride Share Parking Lot – Late Morning to Early Afternoon (Depends on what time rehearsal is)
  • Watch Legends Rehearsal
  • 5:00 PM – Gates Open
