Students should already be practicing Master of the Alphabet, Flash Card Passoffs of 10 seconds or less (both due for a grade at the end of the six weeks, and Counting Charts. Practice Journals are due weekly on Monday . Students will fill in what to practice at the end of each class with their teacher. Students will practice 20-30 minutes each night (or more!) and record that time on the journal. Parents will sign each weekend and the cycle repeats. Home practice is expected and required. The physical demands and muscle memory of producing a QUALITY sound, playing with clean technical accuracy, and the reading of music notation will be strengthened over time ONLY through CONSISTENT, DAILY PRACTICE. No instrument is to spend the night in the band hall Click HERE for current practice journal!
