Upcoming 9-12th Playing Tests

Dear Parents,

All high school students have upcoming playing tests on their festival music.  These playing tests are on February 14th for the Wind Ensemble and February 15th for the Concert band.  Please encourage your son/daughter to bring their instrument home in the next couple of days.   If you don’t hear an instrument being played in your house in the next couple of days…There is something wrong!!!

    Thanks, Mr B for the head’s up! I just saw the note too at home. I don’t recall them ever having a writing piece along with it before? have they?

      Hey Lori,
      I am trying something new. I recorded the kids using a digital set up (I made a mobile recording studio). I find that when the kids hear the mistakes and take ownership for what they are doing and are more involved. These reflections are kind of cool because they are critiquing themselves and are hearing things they might be missing when they are focusing on just playing.
