Band Notes

March 8th, 2018

The spring band season has begun! Please see the calendar page for updated information on all our spring performances, drum major, section leader, and color guard audition dates, and dates for our band camp.

Also, please note that the 2018-2019 school year will be a Disney Trip year for the marching band!

Color guard clinics are instructional workshops designed to introduce the basics of spinning a flag to any student interested in joining the NDCL Color Guard in the 2018-2019 school year.  The clinics will culminate with an audition on May 16 to determine the members of next season's guard.  Color guard adds an important visual element to marching band performances, provides a great way to make friends, and is fun!

Current eighth grade students who are interested and will be attending NDCL in the fall are invited to join us for these clinics!  Please contact Mr. Pysell at to let us know you will be joining us. We hope to see you there!

Also note that we will be continuing with the Credit Flex Program for marching band.  Credit flex allows you to receive performing arts credit for participating in marching band.  It's just a matter of registering for marching band as a class during your course registration for next school year.  This is a great way to earn performing arts credit while still holding a spot for an ELB in your schedule.  Many students also find that taking marching band for credit helps boost their GPA's while doing something they really enjoy!  All applications for Credit Flex in marching band are due by March 28, 2018.  Please reach out if you have any questions!

Finally, the NDCL Marching Band is always looking for new members.  If you, your child, or another student you know is interested in joining a group that plays well and performs often, please let us know!  All you have to do to sign up is contact Mr. Pysell at
