Band Expectations

Grade 7 band students are expected to bring their instrument and method book to class each and every class day.  At the end of the day, students MUST bring their instruments and method books home in order to practice the material covered in class.  At the beginning of grade 7, the expectation is that students will put in about 20-30 minutes 3 or 4 times a week.

Grade 8 and 9 band students are expected to also bring home their instruments and music folders after each band class and also to practice what we covered in class 3-4 days a week for at least 30 minutes. 

Jazz Band is a enriched music experience where students get an opportunity to perform more challenging music and will receive more performance opportunities during the year than being in only regular band classes.  Students in Jazz Band can expect to add about 10-15 minutes to each practicing session to cover both their regular band classes as well as the material for Jazz Band. 

It is important to remember that students' marks for Band 7, 8 and 9 include home practicing.
