Many new beginning band concepts have been presented since my last post and great strides have been made by all of the students. The majority of schools have completed both major performance evaluations and are now preparing for one more test involving eighth notes being played on all beats in the measure (#58 in our method book). For all future performance tests there will be no detailed evaluation sheets sent home for parent acknowledgements and signatures. Student home practice routines should still be maintained with a goal of achieving at least 100 minutes per week.
