Practice Assignment- Last Updated on Wednesday, October 23rd
REMINDER: Always use a metronome when practicing!
TOTAL WOODWIND/BRASS PRACTICE TIME = 15-20 minutes
I am looking forward to a great year of music making in band at Saddlebrook!
5th grade band students are currently working on creating a consistent, good sound while playing the exercises and songs on page 9 in their Sound Innovations book and Mr. Cosby's Scary Song. All band students are looking forward to performing for the kindergarten classes at the end of this month!
Formative assessments are given on a regular basis during the band class, but writing down your practice minutes on the calendar, having your parent's sign it and returning it on practice check days also serves as a formative assessment. The next practice check day is Friday, November 8th. Remember that the expectation is that band students are practicing around 15 minutes each day, 6 days a week.
Are you having a hard time remembering when to bring your instrument to school? No problem- I can help you with that! If you sign up for the Remind app you will receive a text or email (your choice) the evening before each band class. This really helps most families remember when to bring the instrument to school.
