• Performing a solo, or an ensemble, piece in front of an adjudicator is an amazing experience.  We strongly suggest doing this to enhance your musical experiences.  To be as helpful as we can, we have put all information on the band website under the “NYSSMA” link.  Personal practice and hard work help achieve a positive experience.  It is your responsibility to make appointments with us to work on your solo.  We have designated times throughout the week, or just make appointments with us to practice.   If you have any questions or comments, please contact us.
