Here are a few practice tips:  

  • Practice the assignment given every week in band.
  • Practice alone using a steady tempo, then work into playing with the CD.
  • Practice with a friend or group of friends (this is more fun anyway!)
  • Put on a “concert” for your parents, grandparents, aunts & uncles, and neighbors!
  • Have your student show YOU how to play. 

 

5th Grade Band Assestments of Progress:

5th Grade Band Students receive Grades of Progress for their participation in the 5th Grade Band Program. These are to inform the parents and students of  student progress with the basic concepts of playing a musical instrument.

Concepts such as Embouchure, Body Position of holding an instrument, Breath Support, and Tone Quality are covered as assessments of student progress. Other categories include Note Reading, Rhythm, along with Evidence of Practice and Class Participation/Attendance with Instrument and Book.

The evaluations are to serve as a source of information and the grades are not part of the students overall student grade. The full report of a student's grades are on Parent Portal as part of the Infinite Campus Grade Program.
