To the Members of the Coe College Touring Wind Ensemble and Jazz Band:

 

After much planning, we are about to take off on the summer tour for the bands.  You have worked hard to get ready for this, and I hope you will enjoy performing for the different audiences and in the variety of situations.  I know your music will represent Coe well.

 

Please mark your name on the cover of this handbook, read through it thoroughly, keep it with you at all times and refer to it often:  it will be your guide!  It includes a detailed schedule with phone numbers that you would use in case of emergency. It is particularly important that you take it with you to make sure that you know what time to return and how to reach me if you have a question or problem.

 

I think you know already that I will treat you as adults if you act like adults, and I am looking forward to taking this trip with all of you.  I am sure that you will all conduct yourselves with the dignity and maturity that will tell our hosts, audiences, and other observers, that you are proud of what you are doing, both on- and off-stage.  We represent the Music Department, Coe College, Iowa, and the United States to many of these people, and I hope that you will take this responsibility very seriously.

 

Have a great tour!

 

Sincerely,

 

William S. Carson

 

Dr. William S. Carson, Conductor

Coe College Bands

Important Advice:

Most of you are unfamiliar with the places we are going.  Do not go exploring without good directions from a reputable source (desk clerk, etc.).  Under NO circumstances should anyone venture off on their own without a partner.  If you see someone start to wander off, stop them.  I don't want to scare you, but any city has neighborhoods that you should not be in.  NO ONE GOES OUT ALONE FOR ANY REASON!  There is safety in numbers - stick together in decent sized groups (three or more).  Do not carry loosely attached purses, do not carry large amounts of money in wallets in back pockets (the front pocket is less comfortable but safer).  Do not leave items of value in motel rooms.  Watch out for each other!  It is better to be overly cautious than to have a problem.  Be careful in traffic, and do not travel away from the hotels unless you are alert enough to take good care of yourself.  Use good common sense, and I am sure we will have no trouble, but do be cautious.

Things to do Before You Come to Camp

(Tuesday, August 2, 6 pm)

 

Notify Family, Friends – make sure they know where the website is (www.coe.edu/bands), know all the phone numbers in the handbook, and make sure they know the numbers of the Dean’s Office (319-399-8616), the Music Office (319-399-8521), and Mary Dias (secretary in Hickok Hall – 319-399-8619). Also give them my office telephone number – I will check it often:  319-399-8520.

 

Passport, money, and other valuables.

  • As you know, we will have a copy with us, as well as electronic copies.  The passport will also be available electronically to the Dean’s Office, the Music Office, and to Mary Dias, secretary for Hickok Hall
  • You should still take a copy and leave it with your family.  Make sure the passport number is legible. 
  • Make sure you have a secure way to transport your passport, money, and plane tickets.  I recommend a money belt or one of those cases you wear around your neck (under your shirt) – document safe.  Some people (I do this sometimes) use a fanny pack in the front, but watch out when there’s a crowd – people can jostle you and be rummaging through getting your good stuff.
  • I do usually carry a dummy wallet with a few small bills (and no important ID cards) in my back pocket.  I figure if the thief wants something, they can have that.  And that way, if I want to purchase something small, I can do so without showing off the rest of my money.  Or, if someone manages to steal my document safe, at least I have a little money to use to get help!

 

Credit Cards/ATM Cards/Money

  • Call and make sure your credit card and ATM companies know you are traveling abroad so they don’t cancel your card!
  • Make sure that someone back home knows the account number of any credit cards you will be bringing, and knows what numbers to call to cancel them if need be.
  • Make sure you have other plans beside ATM or Debit cards.  I hear they don’t work that easily in Korea.
  • Credit Cards work as well as in the US.
  • Make sure you have some American cash for Hawaii and the airports, and some Korean cash for Cheju. Don’t carry it all in one place, don’t leave very much behind in hotel room.

 

Packing Light

As you know, we have a 40 lb. per person weight limit on Korean Air, even though our United limit is almost 70 pounds per case.  Coe will pay the extra fees to get the instruments to the island, but anyone who goes over the 40 pounds in their suitcase will need to pay the charge – in Korean cash, at the counter – approximately $1.50 for 2 pounds (each way).  Here are some packing suggestions to help you keep it light.

  • Don’t be a clothing horse – we’re all in the same boat – no one will criticize you if you wear the same clothes several times – just wash them in the sink the first night in Korea (actually I think there are washing machines there, but I wouldn’t have a clue how to operate them!)
  • Don’t bring a lot of makeup, cologne, curling irons, etc.  It’s just not about how we look.
  • Bring a few (four) sets of clothes you don’t really care about and just leave them behind in Hawaii and Korea.  Old duplicate Coe College Bands shirts are good for that – maybe we’ll get some free advertising!
  • Soft Side – use a soft-sided suitcase without wheels – why use up ten pounds just for wheels?  Wrap your toiletries in the middle.
  • Rain Coat – you need a raincoat anyway – make sure you have one with lots of pockets and carry it on the Korean Air flight, stuffed with anything you need to bring that won’t fit in your carryon and would make your suitcase overweight.  The rest of the time you can leave it in your suitcase. Carry on any heavy books you have with you – make it look like you’re going to spend the entire 30 minute flight studying!
  • Sample size toiletries – instead of bringing one big bottle of shampoo that stays the same size the whole time, bring several smaller bottles, and discard the empty ones after Hawaii.  Same goes for deodorant, toothpaste, etc.
  • Pack a small, separate bag for the stuff you need for camp.  We’ll let you lock that up in Marquis somewhere.  No point in dragging dirty clothes along with you all the way to Korea and back!
  • Make sure any medication you bring is in the original container.
  • Make sure you pack some personal items in your carryon in case luggage is lost or delayed.

 

Label everything!

 

Practice the music – the better you know it, the more fun we can have with it!

 

And for goodness sake, don’t forget to bring the music!

 

You do NOT need to bring a folding music stand.

Each member of the group reports to the attendance leader with the same footnote marking.

When this happens, feel free to travel in groups of 3 or more.

 



Security and health advice:

§         Try not to stand out as an American once we leave Hawaii. Blend in as best you can. Do not wear logowear that might indicate you're an American (except Coe College stuff!). Don't wear anything with the American flag. Backpacks and fanny packs signal foreign tourists (but I’m bringing mine anyway).  DO wear Coe College clothing in Hawaii!

§         Make sure people back home know how to reach you. Have a calling card, or other method to reach home (it is VERY unlikely that your cell phone will work overseas – even if your company says it will).  I just got a cheap calling card at Target.  Make sure you know that it can be used overseas. Dial these access codes to use your telephone calling cards:

§         For sanitary reasons overseas, do not get any new piercings or tattoos.

§         Avoid places where Westerners are known to congregate, such as bars and nightclubs.

§         Move in and out of hotel lobbies and unsecured airport areas as quickly as possible.

§         Know where the nearest US Embassy or Consulate is.

§         Keep copies of your passport and passport photo in a separate place from your actual passport (this will help if your passport is lost or stolen). Dr. Carson will also have a set of copies.

§         If crowds are forming for any reason other than concerts, stay clear of them.

§         Wash your hands often – maybe carry antibacterial lotion or wipes.

§         Drink lots of bottled water or juices, especially during the flights.

§         Get rest when you can.  There will be lots of exciting things to experience, and you won’t want to miss them in order to take a nap.  Be sensible about bedtimes.  I do not plan to impose curfews, but the hotels and dorms may have some limits.  Please respect them.

 

Things to Bring:

Ÿ         SUNTAN LOTION and SUNGLASSES (perhaps a second pair)!  Please take the Hawaiian and Korean sun seriously.  We don't have time to take you to the hospital for dehydration, sunburn, etc.

Ÿ         Passport – and a safe way to carry it with you at all times: “a person without a passport is a person without a country!”

Ÿ         Travel Alarm Clock – “to be on time is to be late – to be early is to be on time” In other words, be early!

Ÿ         Guide books or money to buy them

Ÿ         Warm weather clothes

Ÿ         Any clothing with Coe Logo, especially Coe Band Shirt(s)

Ÿ         Weather-appropriate clothing – shorts and short-sleeves recommended

Ÿ         Comfortable shoes. (multi-purpose would be good – do you really need separate pairs for beach, concert, plane, etc.?)

Ÿ         Instrument, neck-strap, mutes, stand, extra reeds, mouthpieces, sticks, music, etc.

Ÿ         Spending money:  Be prepared to buy souvenirs, pay for meals, etc.  I suggest that you bring a little extra in case you see something interesting, or in case of emergency.  You do need to be careful about the amount you bring:  treat it like Las Vegas - don't bring any more than you are willing to lose! But make sure you bring enough - I will not loan anyone money (except in emergency).

Ÿ         Your uniform: all black informal attire for both bands (jazz band plays both indoor and outdoor – concert band indoor)

Ÿ         Laundry soap (in a plastic bag). Extra plastic bags for separating wet clothes if necessary. A small clothesline might help, too. Clothespins would be a good addition, too.

Ÿ         Bus and airplane food to share (with me!)

Ÿ         Camera and film (film should be in carry-on only)

Ÿ         Medications and vitamins (Dramamine for the plane if you need it, too) in carry-on

Ÿ         A signed physician’s prescription for each prescription medicine you bring. This may come in handy if you lose your medication, or if there are any questions at customs.

Ÿ         Plan to share items

Ÿ         Plan to bring a small towel and washcloth that don’t take up too much room and don’t take too long to dry.

Ÿ         Swimsuit & towel! (Summer in Hawaii--need I say more?)

Ÿ         Please do not bring beach towels! Too bulky!

 

Things not to bring:

Ÿ         Unneeded Valuables (jewelry, boom boxes, instruments that aren't needed for tour, etc.)

Ÿ         Offensive clothing

Ÿ         No alcoholic beverages in plane, no consumption of alcohol in vehicles

Ÿ         Anything that will not pass airport security

Ÿ         Large items that aren’t needed (hairdryers, etc.)

Ÿ         No aerosol sprays or other flammable objects. (no matches or cigarette lighters)

Ÿ         Don’t bring clothes that take too long to dry!

Ÿ         No knives, etc. in carry-ons. Don’t forget to move your reed knife from your instrument case to your suitcase.

Ÿ         Don’t bring anything you wouldn’t want me to find.

 

Suggestions to keep us all sane while living together so closely for sixteen days:

Ÿ         Don’t lose your passport or plane tickets.

Ÿ         Have your belongings well marked.

Ÿ         There may need to be quiet hours.  Please respect them.

Ÿ         Please respect individual requests for quiet or privacy (but don't allow someone to wander off alone).

Ÿ         Always consult your tour book for times, emergency phone numbers, and information.

Ÿ         Be on time! (“to be on time is to be late, to be early is to be on time!”)

Ÿ         No consumption of alcoholic beverages on show days prior to performance time.

Ÿ         No underage drinking.

Ÿ         Obey all laws. Remember, you represent Coe College. I won’t have enough money with me to pay bail.

Ÿ         Be responsible for your own belongings, and look out for those of others – double-check before leaving concert sites, transportation, and hotel.

Ÿ         Don’t do anything you wouldn’t want me, your parents, or the Dean to know about.

Ÿ         Use common sense, courtesy, and teamwork: we will have a lot of fun, but we will also work hard and try to accomplish a lot in a short time. Help each other out, and get some rest when you have the chance!

Ÿ         Have fun playing in these different places. Take care of your health - there is time for relaxation, but, all told, this is a strenuous tour. I will not be sympathetic with anyone who has fallen ill because he or she failed to get enough rest or who has eaten or drunk improperly. Coe has spent a lot of money on this tour, and I have made a major investment of time. You have an obligation to be at your best at all times when in public. Keep this in mind, and make us proud of everything you accomplish on this trip.

Ÿ         You know that I will treat you as adults - as long as you act like adults. Be responsible, represent us well, be on time, and have a great trip!

 

Hotel Information

Ÿ         No practicing in the hotel rooms. If the front desk can direct you to an appropriate place, go ahead.

Ÿ         Be careful of conversation volume late at night.

Ÿ         Please do not make phone calls from the room, unless you have already made sure that there are no surcharges. Under no circumstances are you to charge calls to the room. If the room has pay-per-view movies, please pay in advance. I want no charges on the hotel bill other than the lodging.

Ÿ         No room switching without permission.

Ÿ         Be respectful of roommates--if you are visiting someone late at night, are you sure their roommate wants you in the room?


 

Travel “Tips”

South Koreans don't expect you to tip, particularly as a 10% service charge is added to the bill in most hotels.

12 tips for a better flight: Inside tips for a ‘not so bad’ flight experience

By James Wysong, travel columnist, Tripso (Updated April 6, 2005)

 

Want to have a better flight? Of course you do. And who better to give you some in-flight tips than a flight attendant whose favorite hobby is passenger-watching? I observe in amusement as travelers make the same mistakes, flight after flight. So what makes the difference between a “horrible” and a “not so bad” trip? Here are 12:

 

1.    Plug ‘em up - Earplugs are a wonderful invention, but seldom used. They can be bought for less than $1, and I can’t stress their importance enough. Just think— no more crying babies, annoying seat chatter, or startling pilot announcements. The whole world seems a lot more tolerable when you use them. They work great in hotel rooms as well. I never leave home without them.

 

2.    Don’t be part of a smelly situation - A small tube of lavender lotion can be your saving grace when it comes to the in-flight body odors swirling around. A dab under your nostrils will leave you smiling while others gag at the nearby passenger with foot rot.

 

3.    Have some taste - If you have the unusual experience of being fed onboard, skip the special meal unless it’s a medical necessity. “Special meal” usually means a not-so-special taste.

 

4.    Bag it - Don’t check out your common sense with your check-in baggage. For example: heart medication, priceless heirlooms, passports, or items resembling weapons. Being reunited with your bags is not always an immediate guarantee.

 

5.    BYOA - Bring your own amenities. Whether it’s pillows, food, blankets, special requirements, magazines, antacid, or whatever, bring your own because airlines are slimming down on all amenities.

 

6.    Be a pessimistic optimist — or is it the other way around? - Don’t expect every detail to go as planned. Delays, misconnects, and seat problems are just a few hassles associated with flying. It’s unusual to make it through an entire journey without something going wrong.

 

7.    Cover thy laptop - When any form of liquid passes near or over your personal solitaire machine, close the cover. I have witnessed accidents, turbulence, and clumsy flight attendants ruin too many computers in-flight.

 

8.    Chat her up - Talk to your seat neighbors once in awhile. They could surprise you and be quite interesting. If not, you can say you tried and will probably never see them again. I have met some of the most interesting people in my life on an airplane. If you don’t try, you’ll never know.

 

9.    Carry on considerably - It is time to be sensible if you are one of the growing number of frequent travelers who carry-on their bags. A perfect-sized roller-board suitcase is one that fits in the overhead bin wheels first and slides to the back. You are taking the space of three other bags if you have to put it in sideways. Save the aggravation of finding a space and consider getting one that fits. I flew with the same passenger three times in the last month, and every time he told me it fit on his last flight, I assured him that I knew otherwise.

 

10. Gadgetize yourself - On your next flight bring an I-Pod, DVD player, or your kid’s Game Boy to keep you distracted. I can’t tell you how many times I have preserved what’s left of my sanity by playing my $5 digital Yahtzee game.

 

11. Check your mental baggage but carry on your sense of humor - Air travel these days is stressful, nerve wracking and can be quite frustrating. If you can look beyond these annoyances, you can often find interesting and quite humorous aspects.

 

12. Give them a small break

 

I know that airline employees can frustrate the hell out of you, but they are fighting for their lives and with less manpower and support. The workload of the gate agents, customer service reps, flight attendants, and even the pilots has recently doubled, but their pay has been halved. It takes a big person to be able to put the shoe on the other foot.

 

James Wysong has worked as a flight attendant with two major international carriers during the past fifteen years. He is the author of the "The Plane Truth: Shift Happens at 35,000 Feet" and "The Air Traveler's Survival Guide."
 


It's All in How You Look at It

William S. Carson

 

Be Prepared:  That may be the Boy Scouts' motto, but we band directors had better take heed, too!  When the time comes to plan band tours, you never know what you're going to encounter.  No matter what happens, there is one thing that is certain - memories will be made!

My own touring experience began with the first tour of the Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp International Youth Symphony Orchestra.  It was an excellent tour to Holland, Denmark, German, and Sweden. Fritz and Gretchen Stansell had obviously thought through many of the details, as they had plenty of experience from the bands they had sent to Europe in previous years. I am sure, however, that no amount of planning could prepare for the contingency of having the young concertmaster contract the measles.  The poor boy had to be left behind in a foreign city with some of our hosts until he recovered.  Or I suppose it was not so great when we were on our way to catch our plane home and the guards at the German/Dutch border discovered that one of our musicians had an expired passport. The problem was only exacerbated by the fact that she was the only member of the orchestra who wasn't a U.S. Citizen.  It took some fancy negotiation to surmount that obstacle!

The Blue Lake tour, however, pales in comparison to the ill-fated 1978 tour to Poland that I took as a member of the Macalester Concert Choir.  First, the person who was coming to pick us up to take us to the airport had an automobile accident and we almost missed our plane.  Then the weather was bad and we had to land - not in Warsaw - but in a small town on the opposite side of Poland, a town that wasn't prepared for a planeload of Americans.  We had to sit under machine-gun guard (remember, Poland was still under Communist rule back then) while they searched all our baggage.  We were eventually able to take a train across Poland to Warsaw so we could start our tour two days (and one concert) later than planned.  The next day Dale Warland, our conductor, slipped on the ice and broke his wrist!  He was unable to conduct the rest of the tour, and our assistant conductor, Peter Hendrickson, only one year out of college, had to take over for the remainder of the trip!  Fortunately, he did an excellent job.  Of course Peter had been singing in the tenor section, and that meant we spent the rest of the tour short one tenor.  And when we returned home we hit another snow storm and had to spend an extra night in New York City.  Unfortunately, it was so late and we were so exhausted that we didn't get to take advantage of that great Mecca of music. I think the trip to Poland takes the cake when it comes to ill-fated tours.

When I worked on my dissertation, I studied the Northshore Concert Band of Wilmette, Illinois, directed by John Paynter.  I found that even that famous group had some challenging situations related to travel.  In 1971, for example, when the NCB traveled to the All-Eastern Band and Orchestra Clinic in Virginia, the airline managed to misplace the band’s music folders. Only after some nervous scrambling were the folders located, allowing the concert to go on as scheduled.  In 1973 the NCB trip to Hattiesburg, Mississippi, was accompanied by a tremendous ice storm which stymied the audiences, although it was not a significant impediment to the seasoned Chicago travelers.

In 1976 the Northshore Band toured Europe, and that trip was a comedy of errors similar to the tour of the Macalester Concert Choir in 1978.  The wildest story from that tour (and maybe the strangest ever) was when the band was scheduled to perform at Windsor Safari Park in London.  Apparently, in that park the animals are not caged, and when Paynter gave the downbeat to "Strike Up the Band," the local rhinoceros was quite startled and began to charge the band.  Fortunately, the old adage held true, and "music soothed the savage beast."  As Ernie Kettnich, a life-long Northshore Band member, told me, "They are wonderful memories, but it was a mess while we were doing it!"

In 1979, right after I graduated from college, I toured Israel with a chamber choir and had an amazing (though frustrating) experience. When we arrived we learned that the person who had supposedly set up our tour (but didn't come with us) had neglected to speak directly with the operators of the youth hostel, which was closed for the summer!  With the help of a couple of kind taxi drivers, we managed to find a hotel that wasn't too expensive.  Then we found out that the choir festival in which we intended to sing had NOT accepted the application our sponsor had supposedly sent in, and that chamber choirs (we only had eight voices) were not part of the Festival!  We had no place to stay AND no place to sing!  We did not let that bother us, but began setting up concerts on our own.  We even managed to schedule performances at the Jerusalem Hilton, where we negotiated time at the luxurious swimming pool (believe me - our cheap hotel did NOT have a pool), and got to have lunch each day at the Hilton cafeteria.  Because we could set our own schedule, we also built in lots of time for incredibly memorable sightseeing.  It was pretty scary being on our own in a foreign country, but we ended up having a fabulous trip.

Even day trips can have their horror stories, like the time when the Southern Illinois University Marching Band was on its way to St. Louis to play at a Cardinal's game. (Yes, this was in the pre-Rams days!)  One band member thought his friend had loaded his trombone on the bus. Unfortunately, when the bus backed up to get away from the curb, the crunching sound told the musicians that neither one had loaded the instrument.  The flattened trombone wasn't much good for the game that day, but it sure made a great conversation piece in the band member’s apartment!

Then there is the mysterious case of the missing resonators. During my first teaching job, as Music Director at Carbondale Community High School in Illinois, I took my groups to Opryland to compete at the American Music Festival, a great event which has, unfortunately, since been discontinued.  Somehow, and I can't imagine how, we managed to pack our vibraphone after the performance, and leave behind one set of resonators.  And even more remarkable is the fact that, despite numerous calls to the Opryland staff, the resonators were never found!  Did another band accidentally pack them with their own vibes and get home and find three sets of resonators?  Did someone think the resonators were trash and throw them away?  Or were they really stolen by an Opryland employee who thought they were just oversized "Pipes of Pan"?  Or are they still backstage somewhere, unrecognized by non-musicians who work in the theater?  We'll never know, but I still laugh when I think about the possibilities.

When I was Director of Jazz Studies at Plymouth State College in New Hampshire, I had another experience with a vibraphone problem.  I had volunteered to usher at a Lionel Hampton concert at our local ski resort, Waterville Valley.  When I arrived, staff members armed with walkie-talkies descended upon me, urging me to hurry back to Plymouth and unlock the band room so the resort’s truck could pick up our vibraphone - Lionel had just flown back from getting an award in France, and the airline had lost his vibraphone!  Needless to say, I was thrilled to loan him ours!  Now there is more to this story that is too embarrassing to put in print, but ask me some day when we're at lunch at Midwest, and I'll be glad to tell!

My inspiration for this article actually came in January, 2000, in New Orleans when I was attending the convention of the International Association of Jazz Educators. While riding on the shuttle between the hotel and the convention center, I overheard some directors exchanging tour horror stories, and one really stuck in my mind.  When the director was leading a band tour, one student had fallen asleep on the bus, and everyone managed to get off the bus, get into the hotel, and get to their rooms before anyone even noticed that the student was missing.  By the time the band director was notified, the bus driver had already gone to sleep, and they had to wake him up to unlock the poor student!

Actually, there was another situation at the convention in New Orleans that bears repeating.  As Grover Mitchell explained, when the Count Basie Orchestra was on its way to the convention, the "Crunchy Granola Airlines" (he chose that descriptive phrase instead of an expletive!) managed to lose the entire set of trumpet folders.  Actually, however, that wasn't such a bad thing for those of us who only hear the Basie Band once every year or two.  The result of the missing folders was that they had to play all the familiar pieces they could do from memory! Yes, the musicians might have wanted to play all the new tunes from their latest CD, but for those of us who teach the Basie charts, it was great to hear them play all the famous standards!

A few years ago, when I took the Coe Touring Wind Ensemble and Jazz Band to Seattle and Hawaii, we had a number of interesting experiences.  None of us will forget the last day, when the student driving the equipment truck managed to get the vehicle wedged between the gas pumps and the canopy at the filling station. And we all laughed a few nights earlier when we spent an hour buying groceries on the way to our resort in Maui, only to find that the barbecue pits had closed half an hour earlier.  Denny's here we come!  This band, however, was great at "rolling with the punches," and even created a new terminology for turning obstacles into advantages.  We began to call them "Creative Adjustment Opportunities," and eventually just used the abbreviation CAO.  With CAO as our philosophy, we found that each new challenge was not a setback, but another chance for us to use our ingenuity. Thank goodness we had this attitude, so that when some of us were separated as it came time to leave Maui, no one was too upset when the plane left with about 40 of the band members, while four students, the trumpet teacher, and the conductor (yours truly) were left behind!  Somehow we managed to have the good fortune of catching the last plane of the night, and still getting to Honolulu in time to catch up with the rest of the band.  Actually, it's too bad we caught that one - otherwise we would have had to spend an extra night in Maui!  What a shame that would have been!

Last summer I experienced two of the smoothest trips I have ever participated in: the Coe Touring Wind Ensemble's spring tour to the West Coast, and the Iowa Ambassadors of Music summer trip to Europe. It should come as no surprise that, as we prepared for these trips, I shared some of the stories in this article with my students, and encouraged them to turn setbacks into "Creative Adjustment Opportunities." With the right attitude, any tour can be a fabulous experience that creates great memories.  Happy touring!

Travel Tips for Musicians - February, 2003 (updated October 2003)

 

 

TIPS FOR TRAVELING SAFELY WITH MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS

Heightened security measures at U.S. airports have impacted the ability of musicians to carry their instruments in-cabin. Below is important information to help you and your instrument safely reach your destination.

CHOOSING AN AIRLINE AND MAKING YOUR RESERVATION:
1. Know airline policy. Each airline may adopt unique restrictions regarding carry-on items. When selecting an air carrier, call to confirm whether the dimensions of your instrument meet the airline' s requirements for carry-on items, and note the name of the agent you have called. Some airlines also make their policies available online. Carry a copy of the policy with you.
2. Be able to address the size of your case in linear inches. Almost all airlines give maximum allowable dimensions as L x W x H or total linear inches. Linear inches is simply the sum of the three dimensions. (For example, if your case has dimensions of 20' x 10' x 10', the linear measure would be 40 inches.) So while your case may not fit into a "size wise" measuring device at the gate, it may very well be within the allowable linear maximum.
3. When making your reservation, request a seat assignment at the back of the plane. During the boarding process, passengers seated in the rear of the aircraft are boarded immediately after first class and special needs passengers. As one of the first on- board, you will have more time to stow your instrument, and more space options.
4. Notify reservation agents of oversized items. Many airlines have a limit on the number of oversized items allowed in-cabin. Even if you have paid an additional fee or book an extra seat for your instrument, request that the reservation agent record that you are traveling with an oversized item that is a musical instrument.

PACKING AND CARRYING YOUR INSTRUMENT:
1. Remove all extraneous items from the case. All tools and other items should be checked or carried separately to simplify the screening process. What are completely familiar items to you -cleaning fluids and tools, valve oil, end pins, reed knives, mutes, tuners, metronomes -may seem mysterious to screening personnel.
2. In the event TSA considers an item suspect and takes possession of it, there are potentially two options available if you cannot surrender the item. Some airlines will provide passengers with a box or envelope, obtained at the airline's ticket counter, in which the item can be shipped back home. Also, in some airports private companies have set up self-service kiosks. Envelopes are provided, in which the refused items are placed, along with money to cover the shipping costs. Because both of these services are not mandated by any federal agency, it is not possible to know in how many airports these options exist. However, know there may be alternative to having an item confiscated.
3. Limit the number of carry-on items. In addition to your instrument, carry only one small item.
4. Arrive early. You may hear that check-in and screening takes only minutes -THIS MAY NOT BE TRUE FOR MUSICIANS. Arriving early will allow for the time you may need to work with security and flight crews to make sure your instrument gets safely on board. Bear in mind that problems may take some time to correct. Therefore, it is imperative that you arrive AT THE GATE at least one hour before boarding time.

DEALING CALMLY WITH LAST - MINUTE PROBLEMS:
It is crucial that as a traveling musician you recognize several important facts.
1. The most important responsibility of airport and transportation officials is security.
2. The most important responsibility of gate attendants and flight attendants is safety.
3. The most important responsibility of the captain is safety AND security.

Your instrument represents an unusual item that could very well be unexpected. Gate and flight crews that have a very short period of time to seat passengers in an aircraft and try their best to deal with the unexpected concisely and quickly. You (and your instrument) are only one of many passengers that will likely have special needs. Therefore, don't take it personally when a gate agent or flight crewmember seems indifferent to your concerns. Their time is limited.

However, you have the backing of the airline to travel with your instrument onboard if the airline permits it. Therefore, it is recommended that you remain calm and polite. In many cases, the problem may be resolved. Consider this:

1. If stopped by a flight attendant, calmly and quickly explain the precautions you have taken to prepare your instrument to safely travel in-cabin.
2. Be accommodating by suggesting placing the instrument in the rear of the aircraft, or securing the instrument with cords or ties (bring your own).
3. If necessary, immediately ask to deplane so that you can resolve this matter with airline supervisors. Remember that you have fifteen minutes at most to resolve this issue before the plane backs away from the gate.
4. DO NOT block the way of boarding passengers.

Finally, prepare yourself for the possibility that you may not be able to travel with your instrument in-cabin -even if you have followed all possible procedures. What will you do? Are you willing to send your instrument by air courier? Is it packed well enough to withstand transportation in the cargo hold? Should you, or can you, travel by train or car?

BACKGROUND INFORMATION YOU SHOULD KNOW:

For years, professional and student musicians traveling by air have carried musical instruments on board as carry-on baggage. In doing so, they have often faced numerous uncertainties when using commercial passenger aircraft. Many have been stopped at the last minute and refused boarding. Musicians have been turned away from flights and those trying to make connecting flights have often had to settle for greater inconveniences in order to complete their journey. In some cases, musicians have had to make the choice between stowing rare, expensive and often-irreplaceable musical instruments in the cargo hold or having their travel plans interrupted, delayed and even cancelled.

The Coalition in Support of Musical Instruments as Carry on Baggage led by the American Federation of Musicians has petitioned the Congress to address this issue. Section 135 of S. 1447, the Aviation and Transportation Security Act of 2001 outlines the will of the United States House of Representatives that the new Under Secretary of Transportation for Aviation Security develop new regulations as a remedy to inconsistent treatment of musicians and their instruments. This important provision of the act reads as follows: S. 1447 Aviation and Transportation Security Act of2001, Relating to Public Law 107-71 Page 41, Section 135

SENSE OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES It is a sense of the House of Representatives that (1) the Under Secretary of Transportation for Security should develop security procedures to allow passengers transporting a musical instrument on a flight of an air carrier to transport the instrument in the passenger cabin of the aircraft, notwithstanding any size or other restriction on carry-on baggage but subject to such other reasonable terms and conditions as may be established by the Under Secretary or the air carrier, including imposing additional charges by the air carrier.

Though this language does not give musicians the specific right to carry any musical instrument onboard, it does provide the Coalition with the tools it needs to encourage the Department of Transportation and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to develop a lasting solution through the federal rulemaking process.

The AFM and the Coalition have forwarded relevant information to the FAA rulemaking office to assist them in their deliberations. The agency is now reviewing procedures that it will adopt. Whatever final rules are put into place to facilitate the in-cabin transportation of musical instruments, these new procedures will have to be observed by all musicians. It is anticipated that each airline that agrees to transport musical instruments will have to comply with these new security procedures as well.

Until these new regulations are in place, musicians are asked to work cooperatively with ticket agents, airport security personnel, gate attendants and flight crews to resolve any difficulties encountered with regard to the transportation of musical instruments.

This information made possible through a collaboration of the American Federation of Musicians; Department for Professional Employees -AFL-CIO; American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP); American Symphony Orchestra League; MENC: The National Association for Music Education; Recording Industry Association of America, and more than twenty national members of the Coalition in Support of Musical Instruments as Carry-On Baggage.
