Concert Music Practice Assignments

Students, I will assign two playing assignments for each week.  You will choose ONE of the two that you are most comfortable with, practice it, video yourself playing it and email it to me.  I will NOT assign you an extremely difficult section that we did not get to go over before spring break.  If you feel like the sections I assign are too easy for you and you would like to give a harder section a try, please email me. Beginning band students, I will give you an option between one of the songs I passed out before spring break, or a song out of our band books.  You will choose whichever one you would like to play.

 

Percussionists:  If you choose to play music but you do not have a drum at home, keep in mind that playing percussion means hitting things.  You can use two pencils on a notebook, or two empty paper towel holders on about anything (although it would be easier to tear those up), or two sturdy (not too long) sticks from your yard and play on the floor or the ground.  Be creative, but don't feel like you have to do a worksheet if you do not have a drum at your house.  If you played cymbals on a part- crash your hands together.  

 

All week 5 assignments due by May 8th

 

High School Playing Assignments:  (Percussion, if you play any part other than snare (including bells), just play the rhythm that you have) 

Week 5-Students, since (as far as I know) this is the final week of us having to do distance learning, I am going to let you pick which piece of music you would like to play from and you can pick which section you play.  The only requirement is that the part you pick has at least 10 measures of playing time.  Please either tell me on your videos what song and section you are playing, or tell me in the email or send me a message on Google Classroom to tell me what song and section you are playing.  If you would rather me go ahead and assign you a section instead, send me a message and I will assign a section for you.
