Band Etiquette

We want every member of our band to enjoy their time with us both at rehearsals and at concerts. Therefore, we have a few rules to ensure this, and at the same time, the band can continue to improve and progress.


  • Prompt start at 7.15pm-set up and ready to play.
  • Turn off mobile phones or put on silent – no texting during rehearsals.
  • Respect the Musical Director.
  • Respect each other’s playing ability and opinions.
  • No talking or playing over Musical Director’s instructions.
  • Help fellow players with setting up band room and packing away.
  • Send a message to band mobile if you are unable to attend rehearsals and give plenty of notice if unable to attend concerts.
  • If you know you are not going to be at a concert please provide your jacket for guest players to use.
  • Original copies of music must remain in the band room apart from concerts.
  • Pay subscriptions in a timely manner.
  • Enjoy yourself.

At Concerts:

  • Arrive 30 minutes before start of concert to help set up the performance area.
