In our discipline of music performance, we continue to learn and grow from processes and knowledge that we already know, as well as from new methods and goals that will be new to many of us as we come together from disparate programs and ensembles. Known to you: the rehearsal format; the responsibility of preparation necessary to help your section, the ensemble, and yourself as you grow as a musician; to engage in the rehearsal in order to truly create the performance of a piece of music (e.g., we strive to enjoy making music and creating a performance at each rehearsal, rather than "drilling" notes, rhythms, etc.). New to you: perhaps a different atmosphere and set of goals than you were used to in your respective high schools; new collegiate colleagues, whose interest in continuing to make music could, or could not, be the same as yours; learning to conceptualize/imagine, conceive/create, collaborate, cooperate, compromise, celebrate (personal and team qualities and skills that are crucial for success and substantive accomplishment in the real world)
