We have had a great week in band and I know your student is looking forward to the Fall Break.
Parents, please encourage your student to practice over the break the following:
*5 Note Band Warm Up #1, #2, #4 & #5 * From Essential Elements Book (see syllabus) # 1-10 * Jingle Bells
Also, we took the 2nd Music Basic Test. A test is given at the end of each week to assess the students knowledge of music theory. Have your students study the following on a daily basis: * Notes & Rest Chart * Wall of Power on which they have written their vocabulary words, the definition and the illustration These charts should be in sheet protectors in their black band notebook. (see previous blog for information on their Notebook Project)
