We have had a nice start to our band class. We are now working on developing our sound, getting rid of the squeaks & squeals and making nice clean sounds for the notes.
We can play the first 5 notes! Students should be able to play these notes cleanly and properly and move easily between them.
We can play in our books from Songs 1-12 (at the beginning of November). Students can keep working ahead in the book and we hope to get to Songs #25-30 by the end of the month!
Students should also be practicing at home for approx. 30 minutes a week to reinforce what we are learning in class. Students need to complete practice logs as homework for this course.
PLAYING TEST: In Class on November 10th (play the 1st 5 notes for Mrs. Vander Kooi)
PRACTICE LOG: Due Dec 8th
