All beginning band students now have homework assignments to develop the following instrumental music skills: Proper assembly of your band instrument. Proper holding of the instrument in the playing position (correct hand and finger placement ). Correct formation of the mouth to the instruments mouthpiece (embouchure). Proper sound production for your instrument (control of air and embouchure). These essentials for acceptable tone production must be practiced daily for at least 20 minutes. A home practice routine must be established at this time of the year for all beginning band students. Good musical results and progress will not come by simply attending the twice weekly beginning band classes.
