Symphonic 1 - Special Edition!

Wednesday, September 23, 2015

We have a few schedule reminders and updates so please keep reading for this special update edition!


Monday, September 28


We are bringing in a special guest for this rehearsal so please make sure your calendars are clear. Snacks and bottled water will be served at 3:30pm. Thanks in advance for helping to make this a productive and positive rehearsal!


Due to our upcoming performance schedule, we will still be on a normal sectional schedule next week. HORNS will have sectionals on Monday morning just for this week, so I will see them at 7:00am on Monday morning!


SIGNED Goal Sheets are due on Wednesday, September 30. This is a non-negotiable deadline! We have LOTS of grades to input in a limited amount of time, so please sign your child's goal sheet in advance.

All Symphonic 1 students should have the following stickers on their goal sheet by next Wednesday:

Sectional 1, 2, and 3 (low brass, saxes, and flutes will have Sectional 4 as well)

After school rehearsal

All scales INCLUDING Chromatic

First two phrases of both All-Region Etudes (3 for percussion)

*If your child has already passed-off Phrase 3, that will carry over to next six weeks.

Everything else was either assessed in class or not assigned.

Remember - every student should receive 100 in Band, but they must do the work! We are always here to help, so please let us know if you feel that your child is getting behind on their pass-offs.


The future is very bright for this group, and thanks to all of you for all of your help and encouragement! We couldn't do any of this without such a supportive band family!
