All Grade 8 Band students need to be fully prepared to play at every lesson and rehearsal.

Pieces we have so far: After the Storm, Three Minute Nutcracker, Dreidl Adventure, Pictures From An Exhibition, The Thunderer, Star Spangled Banner, Illumination

The first three are for the concert on Dec. 19, plus the SSB


 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.




The schedule/lesson calendar is posted on my site, in the band room, and in the Guidance Office.


Keep practicing!
