Description of Fees: 

Fair Share Fee;

This fee will be applied to cover a variety of expenses encountered by the band program not included in the Manor ISD Fine Arts budget. These expenses include but aren't limited to, food expenses, fall marching show costs (i.e. drill design, props, contest entry fees), supplemental marching band staff/clinicians, and transportation. 

 

Instrument Rental Fee:  

A required fee, applied each school year, from MISD for students using a school district-owned instrument (woodwind, brass, and percussion) for maintenance and repair. Parents are strongly encouraged to rent or purchase their instruments from a music store. If you are interested in the rental/purchase of an instrument, please speak with the directors for more information.

 

Band Polo Shirt:

This will be the Band’s informal uniform, used in lieu of the full formal marching uniform for performances such as parades and some football games. This uniform is designed to keep students cooler during hot summer months while maintaining a uniformed appearance.

 

Accompanist for Solo & Ensemble:

Students participating in UIL Solo & Ensemble Contest may require a piano accompaniment depending on the solo he/she is performing. Accompanists generally charge a lump sum for their services which includes: the time to learn the music, rehearsals with the student soloist, and the performance. Students performing a solo not requiring a piano accompaniment do not pay this fee (i.e. percussion students). 

 

Band Banquet:

This is an annual event,  scheduled for the end of the school year, to celebrate and recognize band member accomplishments. The banquet is organized by our Band Booster Organization and includes a dinner, award ceremony, and a dance. Depending on costs, the price for this event varies from year to year. 

 

Spring Trip:

The possibility of a Spring Trip will be announced during the summer of 2020 or

Fall Semester of 2020.
