Can't Take the AMI Course?

If you can’t take the AMI course but want to or need to because you want to be in band, read through this section and complete the form. Mr. Horner will see what he can do.

Situation #1 - "I didn’t select music in February and later realized that this was the worst decision of my life."

Well, quite simply, you’re a 바부!!! Look it up. It’s not flattering. I know there is a lot of pressure to pick courses that will get you into certain university programs but we’ve been telling you since the beginning of time, Music is THE course to take (we don’t go into this here). Now that you’ve realized this, we have difficulties. If all of those people who chose wrong had actually selected the course, we would have more sections available. As it is, we have limited sections and this is why we have conflicts and full classes with waiting lists. You kind of suck but we want to help. There are different ways we can address the problem and if you put your name on the list (see below) and I will see what I can do.

Situation #2 - "I signed up for music but I didn’t get it."

This happens because of conflicts with the schedules and when classes fill up. Put your name on the list (see below) and I will see what I can do.

Situation #3 - "I want to take music but I have other subjects that I have to take."

Meh... tell me a career you are interested in and I will introduce you to a former student who managed to get there and take 4 years of music (they might even say they got there "because" they took 4 years of music). This is a decision you’ve made and there is not much I can do to help you. If you can’t make music a priority, that’s a problem.


In either of the above situations, there is no guarantee that I can fix the problem but if you register your name below, I will work with guidance to see what we can do.

"I can't take the course but I want to be in band"

There are a few reasons why you need to take the AMI course to take band. Having said that, I will always work with students to explore suitable options. They aren’t ideal situations, but we have made exceptions for students based on various conditions that make sense. You need to discuss this with Mr. Horner.
