11/30 - 12/4
WHAT DID WE WORK ON THIS WEEK?
Students will also have the opportunity to play these pieces at a mini concert the morning of Friday, December 18th. More information will be sent home next week regarding this OPTIONAL performance.
In full band, students are learning to play together as a large group. We are working on keeping a steady tempo in addition to playing correct notes and rhythms. The group is showing great improvement each week!
In addition, students have 2 - 3 goals to work towards after every band lesson. These goals are circled and dated in their Essential Elements book. Students are expected to pass at least one goal at the next band lesson. Going ahead of the book is always encouraged if students feel they can successfully play their assigned goals.
To help encourage practice time, ask your child to put on a mini concert for you. You may recognize many of the songs we are working on right now!
