Students will receive 2 test grades for this performance; one for their individual preparation/performance, and one for their audience etiquette when they are not performing.

Practice Records for ALL STUDENTS

All students should be inputting practice log minutes in Charms every day. We have gone over how to input the minutes in all classes. This is a weekly grade and very important for the growth of each musician. If you are having trouble logging into Charms, please contact Mrs. Becker to have your password reset.
