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.
Pieces to be working on: Pictures From An Exhibition, The Thunderer, Star Spangled Banner, Illumination
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.
Check out the links page for musical ideas.
The lesson schedule and lesson groups are posted on the Band Resources page.
