Welcome to the latest in our series of quick tips on usage and style shared by Mignon Fogarty, better known as Grammar Girl. In this tip, Mignon has some advice on confusion over "ban together" versus "band together."
When band is a noun, one common meaning is a group of people who have joined together for some purpose. Think of a rock band, the movie Band of Brothers, or the Silicon Valley investing group known as the Band of Angels.
Trolls Band Together is an upcoming American computer-animated musical comedy film produced by DreamWorks Animation and distributed by Universal Pictures, based on the Good Luck Trolls dolls from Thomas Dam. It is directed by Walt Dohrn and co-directed by Tim Heitz, from a screenplay by Elizabeth Tippet and the writing team of Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger. The film serves as the sequel to Trolls World Tour (2020) and the third installment in the Trolls franchise. Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Zooey Deschanel, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Icona Pop, Anderson .Paak, Ron Funches, Kenan Thompson, and Kunal Nayyar reprise their voice roles from its predecessors, with newcomers Eric André, Kid Cudi, Daveed Diggs, Troye Sivan, Camila Cabello, Amy Schumer, Andrew Rannells, RuPaul Charles and Zosia Mamet joining the ensemble voice cast. In the film, Poppy (Kendrick) and Branch (Timberlake), who are officially a couple, attempt to rescue Floyd (Sivan) while reuniting Branch's brothers after the boyband phenomenon, BroZone, was disbanded. Theodore Shapiro, who previously composed the score for World Tour, will be returning to compose the score for this film.

Small group and individual lessons will be scheduled throughout the week with students grouped by ability and age levels. Students with 1-2 years on instrument will be required to take lessons in order to participate in the ensemble while lessons are optional for those with more than 2 years experience and recommendation of a band/music teacher. All lessons will take place at Royster Memorial Presbyterian Church, Norfolk. 59ce067264
