2016-17 Marching Band Announcements Updated

Bergenfield High School Marching Band 2016


Welcome to the 2016 BHSMB fall season.  After a successful band camp, we are ready for an exciting program this fall!


Practices for the fall are again on Monday evenings at RWB from 6:30-9:00pm and Wednesday afternoons at BHS from 3:15-6pm.  The band also practices on Saturdays prior to performances.  All practices are considered mandatory and are a graded component of the marching band course.  Any musician/athlete conflicts due to BHS athletic events must be communicated with Mr. Timmons immediately upon notification and well in advance. Please the Mr. Timmons or the Band Letter for further information.


The Band Letter is the best source of information for all scheduling information.  It is very rare that any changes to the published schedule will occur during the season.  Therefore, there is an expectation that ALL students attend ALL performances.  Times, where currently TBD, will be announced as they are received from festival organizers.

In addition to the uniform provided by the school, all students are required to purchase a band t-shirt, white gloves and marching band shoes (not required for color guard).  These items are purchases online by going to www.charmsoffice.com.  The school code is BergenfieldMusic and the student area password is their student ID number.  All continuing members are active in Charms now, and new BHSMB members should be active by the end of day on 8/27.  Here is a YouTube video I created explaining how to order on Charms:

To review marching band drill during the summer and for the rest of the season, please install the Pyware Performer's Practice Tools Lite appplication on your computer.  It is free and available at http://pyware.com/studentviewer.html  The username is Bergenfield High School and the password is aroundtheworldin80days.  From the application, students can view their drill spot throughout the show!

Lastly, please be certain all students and parents have signed up for Remind text notifications.  To enroll, text @bhsmb-2016 to 81010.

I'm looking forward to a great season.
