Wind Ensemble/Symphonic Band Sectional
These sectionals serve as critical preparation for the full bands performance and everyone's attendance is essential. Conflicts that arise must be communicated in advance. If a student is out due to illness or through advance parental communication that is director approved then the student will be allowed to make up the grade without penalty. Students missing a sectional without communication will be allowed to perform for max credit of a 70. It is the students responsibility to schedule a time to makeup the playing exam and makeup the missed instruction.
Percussion students will be notified a week in advance of sectionals as needed. Flexibility in needed as we coordinate with Emerson HS directors.
Wind Ensemble - Canvas Updates
Objective Cards are located in Canvas if extra are needed.
Each week in class we will record a runthrough and Listening Reflection will be assigned in Canvas. Students are responsible for listening and providing feedback prior to Monday's rehearsal. Listening Assignments will stay accessible for 1 week and are a completion assessment.
Reference Recordings and UIL Music Parts can be found in the resources section of our Canvas page.
Covid Positive or Quarantine?
Feeling Ill: Your child does not need to practice or worry about what is going on in band. We will catch them up once they return. Please have them clean their instrument prior to playing. Click HERE for instructions on how to clean brass instruments. Woodwind instruments need to throw away reeds that were used during the time they were ill.
Quarantine or Asymptomatic: Continue to practice as guided by the practice log focusing on the items assigned on the objective card.
