What to practice for 6th grade band?
Review m. 55-end. Check to make sure you are playing the correct notes and correct rhythms.
Practice the tough areas for your instrument by practicing them slowly. Then work on practicing the tempo changes.
Work on dynamics at the beginning. Practice the Allegro section faster.
guaranteed to be an awesome spring concert! Hope to see you there!
