A Note from Ms. Hoffman

Hey Everyone!

Your assignment this week is to:

  • Please submit a video recording of you playing measures 44-End of your solo into "Week 37 eLearning Assignment.". Please include the metronome in the recording.
  • Submit any missing assignments in Canvas ASAP.
  • Keep practicing your scales; band placement music will be coming out soon! Everyone will be expected to turn in a recording for a grade. More details coming soon!
If you missed the smore sent out on Saturday, we have a Kendra Scott "Give Back" event benefitting the Staley Band! The promo code is below. A GREAT mothers day gift!

Zoom Check-In

I hope everyone gets a chance to check in with me via Zoom!
Not many people have been taking advantage of the open zoom meeting so I have decided to go to appointment only meetings.
  • My favorite part of my job is teaching students!
  • If you would like help on your music, rhythms, note names, positions, or any other question then please request a zoom meeting any time during my office hours by emailing me directly.


I would encourage all Concert Band Members to use this time to refresh your scales! Mr. Wood and I have created Youtube channels specifically for play-along videos for students. Make sure to check it out!

Clarinet Scales

Trumpet Scales: *Coming Soon*
