Zoom Meetings

All members are invited to JOIN virtually, any and all classes. You are not limited to attend only classes for your instrument family or level. They are all play along broadcasts. That means that we are all working on the same Concert Selections and Chorales. Your Mic will be muted so you will be able to see the teacher and hear the live members, but they will not be able to hear you.

Terms used in the Calendar

  1. All Instruments – Indicates that a practice, rehearsal or sectional, either Zoom or Live, is open to any member playing Wind, String, or Percussion instruments. Our program focus, during this period, centers our study through one large Ensemble. We will rehearse and perform as a String, Wind, and Percussion Ensemble. We are neither a Band nor an Orchestra but an Ensemble of Musicians enjoying growth through the sharing of our talents.
  2. Brasswinds – Instruments of the Brass Family. (Trumpets, Horns, Trombones, Euphoniums, Tuba).
  3. Novice – A playing ability level, beyond Orientation but not yet enjoyed by a consistent Intermediate player.
  4. Orientation – A playing ability level during which a comfort zone is reached between the beginning student of music and their instrument, notation, practice commitment, rehearsal techniques and mental musical comprehension.
  5. Sectional – A rehearsal for a subdivision or small group from with in an Ensemble. These rehearsals may be called by like instrument groupings or by different instruments that play the same PART. (Example: – CLARINET SECTIONAL for all members of the clarinet section; PART 1 SECTIONAL – for all members who play Part I including Flutes, Clarinets, Oboe, Trumpets and VIOLINS. Look for the words ALL INSTRUMENTS and a Part number to help clarify the intended grouping.
  6. Solo Studio – This opportunity is the newest addition to our program. Due to the positive experience of our “First Zoom Recital” we have added a Thursday evening Performance opportunity. Watch for instructions in the “Hot News” on our webpage for more information.
  7. Strings – Instruments of the String Family. (Violin, Viola, Cello, String Bass).
  8. Supervised Practice – This opportunity may be requested by an individual member or suggested by our staff. It is intended to provide a limited amount of one on one or small group supplemental instruction. It does not take the place of participation in an ensemble or performance and is restricted by the availability of our instructors and schedule.
  9. Woodwinds – Instruments of the Woodwind Family.(flutes, Oboes. Clarinets, Saxophones, Bassoons).

How to Reload the Calendar Web Page

When you open the NHB Calendar web page, data for the calendar is displayed and simultaneously stored on your computer in what is called “cached” memory. Using “cached” memory helps speed up the transfer of the website data because it is using data already stored on your computer. Normally this is a good thing, but when you want the most current calendar data you need to tell the computer that you want updated data, not “cached” data. This is accomplished by using the reload icon.

Safari for IOS and macOS – The reload icon is located within the address bar, at the rightmost side. Click it to reload the current page with updated data.

Chrome browser and Microsoft Edge Browser– The reload icon is located within the address bar at the leftmost side.
