Winter Concert – December 5, 2021
All grades, all classes, all ensembles are participating. It is a special event where students showcase their hard work in learning and practicing to the entire Chaminade community!
Being on Time anywhere.
Concert Band is doing really well at being on time. Only 5 students are usually tardy. Remember to set a goal window of leaving the house so you can be on time wherever you go.
Students are being given "mini lessons" at flipgrid.com
Students should practice their music to be ready for the performances.
Students are randomly being chosen to record a flip grid, which is like a mini lesson covering about 2 measures.
Regarding Recording Classes for Band Potato YouTube
Does anyone have any issue with me posting a class performance practice on Band Potato YouTube which is social media? Call me around 5:15 pm M-F or email.
Take home Practice binder
Students are allowed and encouraged to take their personal band view binder home to practice. Just don't forget to bring it back to class.
Thank you Homecoming Volunteers for helping Friday the 17th to make our Popcorn/Snowcone Booth a success. I can always use volunteers in the Band Room. Please send me an email if you would like to help out and what times you are available: email@example.com
Practice Practice Practice
Students should practice at home the music they have played in class and practice the music that is coming up next. (next page or a piece of music of their choosing)
Every student should be bringing their instrument home and practicing what we are playing in class in order to improve musically and mentally.
Help your child set up a consistent practicing schedule.
Everybody should be practicing a minimum of 10-15 min/day for best success.
Everyone should have their books, music stand and instruments by now. Kaye's Music Scene knows exactly what books we are using. Let him know you are from Chaminade, what grade you are in and what classes you are planning on being in. He knows what you will need.
