BIG ELM BEGINNING BAND

Band Schedule



BAND SCHEDULE

8-8:30AM


MONDAYS – FLUTES


TUESDAYS – CLARINETS AND SAXOPHONES


THURSDAYS – TRUMPETS AND TROMBONES


FRIDAYS – PERCUSSION



If your child still needs to play-test, Bandland will be holding free play-testing on SATURDAY, AUGUST 19TH FROM 9:30AM-1:00PM at their store.  You may also contact them at:  www.bandlandmusic.com and at 304-622-1171



Now that band has started, I want to let you know how grades will be given.  For every day there is band,100 points can be earned by bringing the instrument and participating.  Only 70 points can be given if students forget their instrument and cannot participate, other than listening and watching what is taught.  If students do not have their music, they will earn 85 points.  Throughout the year I will assess them on basic techniques such as tone, being able to keep a steady beat, identifying and playing notes correctly, performing rhythms as they fit with steady beat, specified exercises from their books and excerpts from sheet music.  For the assessments, I will be using a rubric giving points for specific objectives.  If I feel there is something that needs special attention with your child’s playing, I will call you.  Likewise, if you have questions regarding what is being learned or you see difficulties at home, please call or email me.  You and your child are investing money and time in learning to play a new instrument.  It will be a joint effort with you, your child and myself so please don’t hesitate to contact me.  Please sign the bottom of this page and return it with your child.  Below are the days your child has band.  Band meets in the music room from 8-8:30 am.  You may keep this information at the top of the page for reference throughout the year.  Thank you for the opportunity to teach your child!
