BAND TERMS (7th & 8th Grade)

All 7th & 8th Grade students are required to study and memorize a specific set of musical terms. The list will be divided into different sections and is on the back of the Junior Scales sheet that students have in their band binder.


Quizzes are given EVERY FRIDAY on the terms and are CUMULATIVE (i.e. the first test will include 8 terms, the next will have 16, etc). Below is a complete list of the terms in the order that they will be introduced.


QUIZLET FOR BAND TERMS

We have also set up a Gable Band class on Quizlet, which includes the terms for each quiz as well as a complete list. This is a great study tool and you can even use it on the go!
