We will have band today - but no band for the rest of the week. Monday and Tuesday next week we will also have full band.
Over the break - I'm asking the students to fill out the back of their practice sheet. They need to practice 100 minutes during our almost 2 week break. We will be working on pages 10 & 11 in the book. A great way to get some playing time in would be to have your child perform some of the songs we played at the concert for family on Christmas!
After the break - we will be having full band on our first day back on Tuesday.
The week of January 9-13 the students will have a playing test and a written test. For the playing test students will have to play one song of my choice from our concert lineup and one song from pages 10 & 11. The written part of the test will include identifying notes on the staff, identifying types of notes/rests and how many beats they get.
Also by the end of January I would like for all of the students to have the two Queenwood books. You can get these at Eckroth or order them online at http://www.jwpepper.com
