|Subject Area||Symphonic Band|
|Unit of Instruction||Applying Performance Fundamentals|
Students are given a weekly participation grade. To receive full credit, students must have their instruments, materials, music ready for class. Students must also demonstrate a positive and constructive attitude towards themselves and classmates, and participate with proper posture.
Starting at the end of September, weekly scale tests are to be performed for a grade. Students will demonstrate correct posture, correct embouchure, perform with a steady tempo, playing the proper notes with a full, characteristic tone, and the prescribed articulations.
Worksheets and other written assignments will be given out to reinforce what we are learning in class.
RECOMMENDED: Students should practice for 20-30 minutes daily. Playing on their instrument everyday develops and reinforces what they learn in class, and helps them retain the information presented in class, or the pieces, exercises that they perform.
|Important Dates – All after school rehearsals and performances are summative grades. If your student cannot attend these rehearsals/performances, you need to let me know as soon as possible, so I can give them an alternative assignment.|
