• Goals & Objectives:

    • Continue learning to play and practice a band instrument individually, building on concepts learned in 5th grade
    • Continue learning use of good sound, rhythm, tempo (speed), and notes
    • Reinforce proper instrument care
    • Continue learning to play and rehearse with other students, in small and large groups
    • Continue learning to perform for an audience, individually and in small groups


    • Band Lessons run on a rotation - 6th period - A,B, C, E, or F
    • Band students come to band lessons instead of general music
    • Every rotation day D will be FULL Band with all students together
    • Band students should plan ahead for their lesson and full band days and be sure they have their instrument, music and supplies at school on those days


    • Lesson participation & practicing - 10 points each lesson
    • Related CANVAS assignments - 5-10 points each rotation
    • Level playing tests, individually - 5 points

    • Concert performances are our opportunity to showcase everything we have learned to parents and the community.
    • Concert performances are like our mid-term and final exams. They are mandatory and graded. Please plan ahead
