North Band Notes

Symphonic 2 Edition

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015

We have a few schedule reminders and goal sheet updates, so please keep reading for some important information.

Sectionals

If your student has missed a sectional, or will not be able to make their normal schedule, please communicate with us. We will provide your students with an opportunity to make up that grade.


On Normal Weeks:

Monday: 7am Oboes / 3:45pm Flutes

Tuesday: 7am Clarinets / 3:45pm Horns

Wednesday: 7am Percussion / 3:45pm Low Brass

Thursday: 7am Saxophones

Friday: 7am Trumpets / 3:45pm Bassoons

Goal Sheets & Grades

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 2 students should have the following stickers on their goal sheet by next Wednesday:

Sectional 1, 2, and 3 (flutes, oboes, clarinets, horns, and percussion will have Sectional 4 as well)

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.

THANK YOU!

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!
