EXTENSION - Solo & Ensemble Contest Recording Assignment
ALL 7th and 8th grade students should be working on their solo for the Solo & Ensemble contest. We have secured recordings of the piano parts that they will play along with in their submissions. This is a REQUIRED event and ALL students will receive a TEST GRADE for their participation.
For their solo, they will need to dress nicely, introduce themselves and what piece they are performing, and have their ENTIRE BODY visible in their video. They will play along with the piano recording, making sure you can hear both the piano and the student in the video.
A detailed instructional video has been posted, and the assignment is already available on Canvas. Students who complete their Solo Contest Recording Assignment by the end due date (February 23) will receive a bonus 100 to replace their lowest grade so far this grading cycle.
Pre-UIL Performance/Recording Event
Tuesday, March 2nd, 2:30-4:30pm
3901 Miles Road
**If your student is virtual and participating, please drop them off at the front door of Sachse HS at 2:45pm.**
ALL STUDENTS WILL NEED TO BE PICKED UP FROM SACHSE HIGH SCHOOL AT 4:30pm.
Parents are not allowed to attend the performance, but we will share our recording with you!
We are recording at Sachse High School because they have more space for our group to safely perform and our recording will sound MUCH better than if we recorded in our gym or cafeteria.
It's never too late to get started in private lessons! If you want your student to catch up, get ahead, or just get more reinforcement, click below to sign up.
