Week 6: April 20-24

Week 5 Words from Mr. Wood

I hope everyone had a great weekend! We are not uploading anything this week, but continue to work on pep tunes and scales.


  • 7th graders will get their audition music soon- keep working on scales in the meantime.
  • 8th grade students should review the information below. If you would like additional help with the music please let me know so we can set up a zoom session for the afternoon (I am working with the beginners most mornings).

Pep Rally

In May we are going to start looking at pep tunes! The best way to access them is at THIS LINK. Note that there are a lot of folders and music options. The easiest way to get to YOUR music is by choosing the pdf with your instrument (large). The primary focus in may will be Spiderman, Go Northwestern Go (our fight song) and the Hey song. Beginning Band can also look at Crunch Time- which was added to the packet later so it can be found at THIS LINK. Don't worry too much about this music- this is just for fun right now!
