Concert Band-Demic

Week 8: March 4 - 8, 2020

Band Audition/Exam Performance due this week!

Hey everyone!

Your assignment this week is:

  • All 7th Graders should prepare the End of Year Audition Music and submit to the "Staley Band Placement Exam Recording" In Canvas
  • 8th Graders should prepare their High school audition music or the Staley Exam music if you are not continuing in band.

Everyone should prepare the music and submit a video as this is also your exam grade for band.

Only those who are continuing in band will know their band placement.


Student Check Out Form- Please take time to fill out the form below. It will help guide us as a band staff regarding instrument check-in and closing out the year information. If you have any questions please let me know. We are asking that every student/family in the program fill out this form by Wednesday 5/13 as it impacts our district mandated instrument collection day on Monday 5/18. Thank you.
