Good Afternoon.
Brian Coatney
06:19
oh man, I logged in and the first thing I saw was Todd Clearwater. Gross.
Steven Dojahn
07:34
My apologies folks. I shared my meeting link with region 6 band directors. I was unaware that the link was personal.
John Carroll
07:58
Brian, now you know how we feel when we see your name.

Cathy Benford
20:19
Thank you all for your leadership in keeping the health of kids and teachers in mind as you made that (I’m sure) difficult decision!
Scott Johnson
20:28
Is that ATSSB as well?
Frank Coachman
21:13
Yes, ATSSB, is included.
Elaine Truitt
21:52
Our region has a non-competitive region band audition. Is that covered as well?
Brian Coatney
23:24
through January 10th
Chuck Wilson
26:18
Is it ok if I record on my computer? I keep getting interruptions in my office and am missing some things that I would like to go back and review.
John Carroll
27:18
Chuck, the whole meeting is recorded and will be available on the TMEA website Covid page within a day or so.
Chuck Wilson
27:18
Entertain the heck out of our fans!
Steven Rosario
28:10
^^ I'm already prepared to arrange some dope tunes!
Matthew Raines
44:37
Is there any talk about submitting Marching UIL via video as well like the TMEA auditions? Traveling may be an issue for some districts.
Chuck Wilson
45:04
That is a good question
John Carroll
46:44
Todd, if you could email this power point to Frank Coachman, he could post it to the TMEA website. It would be really valuable to have it there.
Cathy Benford
47:17
Even through the summer, we host virtual director chats (optional) for our kids. It’s fluctuated on how many have come but when I host them, I just let them chat with each other. It seems to help.
Cathy Benford
48:00
MuseScore is free.
Cathy Benford
49:01
That was great, Todd. Thank you!
Bonnie Anderson
49:38
it was really great. thank you
Steven Rosario
49:47
GO COOGS!!
Chuck Wilson
49:53
What about Matthew Rains question?
Juan Cantu
51:33
my concern is being held accountable for a UIL marching show when my district may go to a core class only in person and electives online solely.
Alan Guckian
53:12
any traction to the sports season swap?
Seth Davis
53:22
Will the powerpoint from the previous session be available to peruse later? It has some great ideas!
Jarrett Lipman
53:38
Yes
Matthew Raines
53:51
Online payments through paypal via CuTime
Chuck Wilson
53:57
I am considering several different shows for halftimes a la college band style
Michelle Lessing
54:03
We are allowing our students to pay fees throughout the year.
David Stephenson
54:07
We are waiting to set fees until we know more.
Taylor Smith
54:17
Going 25% off normal fees for now. Will go more as needed.
Chad Dempsey
54:21
No fees for our district and very limited to no fundraising.
Juan Cantu
55:40
same
Cathy Benford
55:53
If your Boosters sell spirit wear, they can have a “who wore it best” contest. Anyone how buys/owns the spirit wear item submits photos wearing it looking their best. The winner gets featured on the Booster/Band website as advertising for selling the spirit wear to others.
Juan Cantu
56:10
our monies come from football concession stand profits, no games , no $$$$
Aaron Burr
57:04
Same here, Mr. Cantu. Football Concessions is far and away our biggest fundraiser and even the biggest fundraiser in the district.
Jarrett Lipman
57:58
I know what I share won’t be practical for all — but one more thing to add to the brainstorming of trying to figure out.
Chuck Wilson
59:11
UIL has already stated that they are planning on keeping the contests where they are and that they are planning on having contests
Juan Cantu
59:38
buying show and moving over to next year
Dwight Dodd
59:55
There is one fact that has been decided by UIL about football games
Steven Rosario
01:00:00
We do but there's.. politics in the money/revenue in that for us
Steven Rosario
01:00:06
(concessions)
Cathy Benford
01:00:28
Dwight Dodd has his virtual hand raised.
Chuck Wilson
01:00:46
What are people thinking about band trips next spring or summer?
Thomas Galvez
01:01:21
no travel next year.
Juan Cantu
01:01:28
special needs students in band
Elaine Truitt
01:02:21
That would mean you could broadcast a virtual performance during halftime.
David Stephenson
01:03:16
I have a hard time asking families who are struggling financially to come up with money for a spring trip. We are fairly affluent, but a large portion of them are in a different financial situation now compared to 4 months ago.
Chuck Wilson
01:03:52
David, I am considering not planning a trip at all for the same reasons
Eric Rettig
01:04:11
Along with design staffs, like Jarrett Lipman was talking about, if you have any way, try to remember your private lesson teachers, the ones that private lessons are their main-maybe only-income, that have been regular in the past. It is important to help them if you can.
Cathy Benford
01:04:32
Welcome to Texas y’all!!!
Todd Patterson
01:04:37
If games are streamed, that would likely raise concerns about copyright. Would we need a separate license to stream halftime shows, assuming we would get to perform?
JD Janda
01:04:51
I grew up on a chicken farm, does that count?
dennis.boucher
01:04:55
Is there going to be another session soon?
Juan Cantu
01:05:11
how ca n students march and adhere to cdc guidelines?
Chuck Wilson
01:05:37
Todd, I believe that you do have to have a license for streaming music. I am looking into that next week myself
Cathy Benford
01:05:42
Livestreams have different copyright rules. You’d have to look into the way radio broadcasts work.
Dwight Dodd
01:05:55
Remember that all across the nation, bands going in. Areas of the country that competition is not as big a deal. Yes it will be different but not impossible!
Cathy Benford
01:06:03
It was mentioned in my Law and the Arts class at UH.
Jeffrey Gorring
01:07:11
