We are using a new practice record format this year!
All students are required to practice 500 minutes per grading period.  Students will log all minutes practiced and goals for each week on one record.  Once you have practiced at least 500 minutes, you may turn in the practice record.  
 
The practice record for this nine weeks will be due on December 15th.  
 
A copy of the practice record can be found in the class handouts section on this page.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
**Practice Records
Students are asked to practice 20 minutes 5 days a week to help build muscle control and muscle memory on their instruments.  A practice record containing 500 minutes signed by a parent will be due no later than the last Wednesday of each grading period.
