Tiger Band Handbook
The handbook functions as the syllabus for MUS4250 and as an outline for the operation and procedures of Tiger Band.
Absence / Information Request
All absence requests must be submitted to be considered for approval. This includes if you need to miss Tiger Band due to quarantine, positive COVID-19 test, etc.
Complete this anonymous form if you have encountered or witnessed any unpleasant experiences while being a member of Tiger Band. Examples of distressing encounters can consist of (but are not limited to) bullying, hazing, racism, sexism, etc.
All uniform issues must be reported as quickly as possible to facilitate timely resolutions.
Uniform Accessory Request
Request replacement uniform accessories such as battery packs, shoes, e-flips, and section leader / senior cords. The replacement costs for each accessory are listed in the Tiger Band Handbook & Syllabus. After submitting your request, you will receive an e-mail from Kara Duplantier confirming your purchase.
Instrument / Lyre Repair Request
Repairs will be handled as they are requested. Please provide as much information as possible about the problem / necessary repair when filling out the form.
All requests to challenge must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. CST the Sunday PRIOR to when the challenge will take place. Halftime challenges will take place on Tuesdays directly after rehearsal. Pregame challenges will take place on Wednesdays after rehearsal. If you are challenging for both, submit the form twice.
Please inform both the person you are challenging and your section leader(s) of your intent.
Building Access Request
Student staff may request card access to the Tiger Band Hall. Request for access are reviewed by both the Department of Bands, the College of Music & Dramatic Arts, and then ultimately activated by LSU Facility Services.
The level of access given is in direct relation to any needs in your role. For instance, a wind section leader would not receive access to drumline/percussion storage or the staff room. All access is tracked and logged.
Comp Ticket Request
All members of the LSU Tiger Marching Band enrolled in MUS 4250 are entitled to one (1) comp ticket to every paid School of Music performance. Requests must be made through the form linked below at least 72 hours in advance.
The use of Department of Bands-controlled spaces may be requested by Tiger Band students for band-related reasons, such as sectionals. All requests are evaluated by staff and/or directors prior to approval.
To request use of a space, first consult the appropriate room calendar to check availability, then submit the Room Reservation Request Form. In the event a Department of Bands-controlled space is not available, you may request a School of Music or Music & Dramatic Arts Building space by visiting the School of Music website.
