Band Homework

Both groups you should be seeing instruments at home at least twice a week. This is part of their weekly participation grade. Sounds coming out of their instruments should not sound like an actual song but rather small sections and even just a few rhythms that they are trying to figure out. But you should hear a good tone and know what instrument they are playing. It is normal to hear the same section of music over and over again. Please encourage your child to practice until they can not get it wrong rather than just getting it once and think they are golden.

Concert Band

Due by October 31.... A 12-15 minute video of student practicing.


Students can send the file via dropbox, private youtube account, or even on a thumbdrive.


Worth 200 test points.

Mark Your Calendar!
