Welcome to LCNBands.com

L'Anse Creuse High School - North Instrumental Music is under the direction of Mr. Daniel Griffith and assistant Mr. David Mety and includes four full concert bands, winter percussion ensemble and a marching band of 160+ members.  Both the Marching Crusaders and the LCN Percussion drumline are competitive circuit programs locally to the northern Detroit, Michigan area.

Crusader Bands have established a reputation of excellence through inclusion and integrity in marching, concert, and auxiliary programs. The band has consistently earned exemplary awards at MSBOA state competitions, receiving first division ratings in marching, concert, and sightreading contests.
 
 
 
 

What's happening right now?

BOOSTER MEETING: 1/19
January's booster meeting will be this Thursday at 7 in the band room.  As always, we encourage you to join us!  


SOLO & ENSEMBLE:
Mr Mety sent out an email not too long ago with lots of good info re: S&E.   If your student is participating in S&E this year and you didn't get the email, let us know!  And I do get some questions about performance times but the schedule doesn't come out until much closer to the event.....when it is available, Mr Mety will hang it in the band room (helpful hint: have your student take a photo for future reference!)

If you are performing a SOLO event - you likely need a piano accompanist to play with you. There will typically be around a $50 fee associated with this to pay your accompanist for their time. However, it could vary by accompanist and the number of rehearsals you require. If you don't have one yet, here are two familiar pianists to get in contact with. I will be checking with every solo event in the coming weeks to make sure that you have your accompanist situation sorted out.

Starting on Wednesday, January 11th, I will be pulling students out of class to begin listening to your progress on your events and give you feedback. During this time, we will also check the length of your event and make sure it meets the 2 minute minimum time length for S&E. Please be prepared for this to happen at any time during the coming weeks. Your pieces should be at the point now where you are relatively comfortable with playing it and aren't struggling to make it from beginning to end. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to talk to me in class or contact me.

Thank you! Looking forward to many great performances by our talented students!: )
