Weekly Recordings

In the Spring Semester, all wind players (woodwinds and brass) are required to make a weekly recording using the built-in Canvas recorder. These assignments are posted on Canvas every Monday, as well as written on the board at school, and are due by midnight on the following Sunday. This gives every student a full week to make each recording, which counts as a summative grade.

Tuesdays & Thursdays (3:30 - 4:30 pm)

Thanks to the Little Elm Band Boosters, EVERY BAND STUDENT at LEHS was given a one-year subscription to Smartmusic. Smartmusic is an online, interactive program that makes practice more enjoyable and fulfilling for band students. It provides a wealth of practice materials, accompaniment recordings, band recordings, etc..as well as a way for directors to provide greater feedback and performance assessment. Please be sure your child has accepted the invitation that was sent via school email and they complete the Smartmusic registration. They will enjoy having this practice resource!
