This course is designed to give the student an enriching and diverse instrumental music education. The daily objective of the course is to foster and promote musical growth through the playing of an instrument by the student and through instruction on music theory and history. As a member of the band family, focused individual effort and flexibility is necessary for success. Band is a skilled effort in which each student is expected to show technical and musical growth throughout this course.
- Supplies (reeds, valve oil, drumsticks, etc)
Each day, you will be expected to attend the live session with your instructor in a timely manner, as well as complete that day’s playing or written assignment. These assignments will vary in length and difficulty, but will be very achievable within the designated class period. It is imperative that you complete these playing or written assignments when they are assigned rather than putting them off to avoid deductions for late submissions and the stress of playing catch-up at the end of the grading period.
Virtual Learning Etiquette
- Mute your microphone and/or turn off video when joining live sessions to eliminate distractions from instruction.
- Put your cell phone away during live sessions. Give me the time and attention I need to teach you, please!
- Do not work on assignments from other classes during live sessions.
- Be willing to comment. Discussions go much slower when no one talks or types!
50% - Formative Assessments (small playing assignments, music theory exercises, comprehension checks, etc)
50% - Summative Assessments (full performances of pieces, music theory and history quizzes and tests, etc)
