Beginning Band

Filed under Beginning Band

All students should be preparing for their Intermediate Band Audition/Placement test scheduled for Wednesday, January 20, 2010. Students should prepare one selection of their choice from pages 6-12 in the Standards of Excellence method book and be ready to sight read a selection of Mrs. Long’s choice from the same pages. The test is just a way to see how each child is progressing and should be a stress-free playing experience.

I look forward to hearing everyone. Please contact me if you have any questions of concerns.
