As of this writing most of the 8 elementary beginning bands have arrived at our first major benchmark for progress evaluation-exercise #25, "One Step at at Time". Each beginning band member will individually perform this line of music in class while I make on the spot evaluations regarding 13 important instrumental skills that should be demonstrated. After their performance each student will receive a completed Beginning Band Progress Report that must be taken home for their parents to read and acknowledge with a signature. Band students must bring the signed evaluation form back to me at the next band class.
