 RE: How to memorize music for band

I kinda agreee with where Daniel's coming from. But actually I really enjoyed playing, even if in retrospect I know that one clarinet cannot be heard, no matter how extrordinary a player, and that I busted my chops more than it was probably worth. Memorization comes after much practice - use that flip folder on the field during practice, but try to use the music in conjunction with turns, spins, and other movements. It helps. I'd do it again b/c of all the friendships and fun we had. I was section leader by my sophomore year and helped our players become better players. i did hv my fun though - I'd say turn your stands around and let's play it by memory. I quickly knew who was ready to march and who wasn't. Funny thing i noticed in college, almost all the college bands use flip folders -- they don't memorize their music!!! Frankly, I feel that a great clarinetist should aspire to drum major, not bust chops marching around a muddy field full of holes and pitfalls. The proper leader of the band is the first chair clarinetist - the same person who tunes the band :) Good Luck.
