Welcome!

Welcome to our band website for the purposes on online learning.  We are still keeping up our actual band website for overall updates.  I will provide a link for that on the page.

I hope that you all are staying well!  I miss you and am here if you need ANYTHING at all. I hope we can have a little fun with your band assignments and passoffs!

 

News/Assignment Updates

UPDATE

Thank you for your patience with me in the last week.  We are back on track and ready to roll.  I have broken up the leadership units into multiple lessons.  This should help you be able to work in it in chunks and submitting that way.  We have had some students losing their work after working on something for a while. 

Since we are off a week from everyone else, we wont place a deadline on these things.  You should just make sure to get your things done by the end. 

Scales: F, C, G, Gb

       *If you are ready to pass off the others, please go ahead and do so.

Percussion:  Measures 5 - 10 of your etude.  If you would like to work ahead, please do so.
