Summer Sectionals 

Over the course of summer, each section will meet with their section leaders to practice and get to know each other.  Your child’s section leader will set up a time and place that works best for the section.  The sections leaders are the finest students in our program and will play the role of a “big brother/sister” and mentor for your child.  They will be able to help your child with music, marching, and any questions or concerns.



2017 Royal Regiment Camp
Band Camp for the 2
017 marching band season will run from August 7th-11th, and 14th-18th.  There will be an end of camp performance and parent potluck meeting on Friday night, August 18th, to demonstrate what was taught at band camp.  Camp times and details will be sent out as the date approaches.  You may also find times for each day listed on our calendar at www.rbmusic.org.

*Note - Students will spend a large portion of the day at school for training during band camp but will not actually "camp" or stay overnight at school. 


Fall Schedule
Please be sure to check out the rehearsal and performance schedule on our program calendar at www.rbmusic.org/calendar.  All dates for the school year are available on the website calendar.  


Once again, welcome to the RBHS Music Program.  We look forward to meeting you and working with your child!  If you have any questions about the RBHS Music Program feel free to contact Mr. Otani at dotani@powayusd.com.
