Assignments Due

Every week, students are given a daily participation grade.  In order for the student to receive full points for the week, they must have their instrument, required materials, and a positive and constructive attitude towards themselves and their classmates.

Students will also receive worksheets that reinforce the topics that we discuss in class.

It is highly recommended that students practice daily for 20-30 minutes.  Practicing daily will reinforce the skills that we learn in class!

For any written work, I will now post a copy of the assignment, as well as the assignments due date on my remind code:  My remind code for 2nd period beginning band is: dd76hc
