Our rehearsal calendar is imported into the Band App from google calendar, which we can’t set to automatically give everyone notifications of rehearsals (it is considered spam). There are three ways to set your own reminders. The easiest is to subscribe to the google calendar and set reminders as you usually do.
You can also set reminders in the band app 2 different ways by following these instructions:

Brown Theme – inScoreOrder is part of the JHCBand.org website, the app is written by Julie Wilson.
We have an extensive Music library, our Music Library Database is accessible from the JHCBand.org home page, then click “Music Library”.
obtaining sets of music is a substantial investment, in addition, some of the music in our concert folders is out of print, rented, or borrowed. All original folders must stay in the rehearsal room, exceptions can be made, however your folder must be in the band room for every rehearsal, even if you are unable to be there.
We rotate folders throughout the year, and have a few special event folders. Each folder is turned in after the last concert in its series, a new folder will be passed out at the next rehearsal.
If you need rehearsal copies of music to bring home, we have a photo copier and extra folders in the library, please make a take-home “rehearsal copy” folder for yourself. Copies are for rehearsal purposes only and should be disposed of after the performance(s).
You can find a link to a Virtual Folder which contains the music we are rehearsing, some sample music to listen to, a rehearsal schedule, an event schedule, and event details.
Active band members may rehearse from PDF on screen. To choose the instruments you would like to see, please click the option link (above music listing or the gear icon on top of page) to go to options. Please note, not all music is scanned.
You can add the library to the home screen of your iPad, tablet, Android, or iPhone so you can access it from anywhere.
Under no circumstances will Band equipment be loaned to other groups, except through our equipment manager and according to policy.:
Requests from approved groups to borrow equipment requires an email chain of request, approval, and acknowledgement of return of equipment.
