Welcome to the Edgewood Bands
WELCOME parents & students. I hope everyone had an enjoyable summer vacation. I look forward to teaching you this semester. Let's work together to make the 2015-2016 school year excellent!
Below is an attachment of the Band Handbook. This is an overview of the course content, classroom rules, consequences, as well as other frequently asked questions about our band class.
Homework in band class consists of practicing your instrument on a regular basis. Practice journals are handed out to every student, every week of class. Students are expected to record their practice time on the journal and turn them in every Friday.
A copy of the Practice Journal can be found in the above attachment of the Band Handbook.
What we should be working on at home:
7th & 8th Advanced Band Grade Students:
Concerts are a chance for band students to showcase all the work they have put into their music. It is important to remember to check the calendar in the Band Handbook for the next concert. Concerts take place in the evenings to allow for a better chance for working parents to see their children perform.
A copy of the band calendar can be found in the above attachment of the Band Handbook.
