Double Reed Band-Demic

Week 7: April 28 - March 3, 2020

A Note from Ms. Hoffman

Hey everyone!

Your assignment this week is:

  • Record yourself playing your entire solo with repeats on pg 36/37 and upload it to "Week 38 eLearning assignment" in canvas by Sunday.
  • Keep up with your daily warm up and scales!


Audition Music Time! Check out the videos below for helpful tips on your audition music!

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


Let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks,

Ms. Hoffman

Audition Music

Hopefully you saw our smore regarding auditions (here is a link). Since we are not going to have a solo contest, we are shifting to audition music for the end of the year. To facilitate this we are going to have two afternoon and two late morning help sessions (all optional) that is open to all 6th and 7th grade students. This will help us meet the deadline of May 11th as per Mrs. Robinson's instructions to us.


Oboe should watch the flute videos and Bassoons should watch the Trombone videos but feel free to watch any of them!

Audition Help Session

All 6th and 7th grade students are encouraged to log into one of our eight zoom help sessions.


  • Wednesdays & Fridays 4/29, 5/1, 5/6, 5/8 from 11:00-11:30. Click THIS LINK
  • Tuesday & Thursdays 4/28, 4/30, 5/5, & 5/7 from 1:30-2:00. Click THIS LINK


When you log on please be sure to mute your microphone, but have your video on. A director will play sections for you and give you a chance to demonstrate (if you wish) or have any questions answered that you might have. These eight zoom sessions are the ONLY help directors are offering in an effort to keep things on a level playing field for all students. If you would like additional help please consider enrolling in private lessons. Email Ms. Hoffman at hoffmans@friscoisd.org if you would like information on how to enroll.
