Welcome to the Grade 8 Band Website.
No Jazz Ensemble Rehearsal today, Tuesday, Feb. 9
no rehearsals on delayed openings
The Grade 8 Band is working towards the Peekskill St. Patrick's Day Parade which will be held on March 12. Drop off is at 2:15 (location tbd), pickup at 4:00, at the Elks Lodge (next to DMV).
This will be voluntary - but strongly recommended! It will be a blast!
All Grade 8 Band students need to be fully prepared to play at every lesson and rehearsal.
That would include all of the following:
instrument in working order, pen, pencil, notebook, folder, Lesson Book, band music.
It is important to practice the scales with a metronome, available on my links page, or as a free app for any smart phone.
The speed for the scales is "120".
All students should be working on the Star Spangled banner, page 23, #81.
Northface up to the slow section.
The schedule/lesson calendar is posted on my site, in the band room, and in the Guidance Office.
Check out the links page for musical ideas.
The lesson schedule and lesson groups are posted on the Band Resources page.
