Students MUST use the resources made available to them.  Study guides, flash cards, access code in their book, tuner app and breathing exercises we have done in class need to be a regular part of the practice routine.


In the 'RESOURCE' section below, you will find links to flashcards that we have already given copies of to students.  They REALLY need to be studying these EVERY night.  If their's has become misplaced, please download a new set.


Some students are falling behind in their ability to identify certain music notation basics and rhythm reading skills.  In the 'RESOURCE' section below you will find links to the study guides for notation and rhythm that we use in class.  If your child has misplaced their copy please print a new one.


EVERY THURSDAY is written test day.  We have a battery of ten test students will take between now and Christmas.  Some are still on #2 or #3 while others have moved on to #6 or #7.  Students must make a score of 90 or better to move on to the next test.  This way we know that they understand the concepts, so some are taking the same test every week and still not making the grade simply because they do not prepare by utilizing their resources. 


Here is a great tool to help woodwind and brass students with their new notes. Download this FREE tuner app for students to use during their practice time at home. Just click on the appropriate platform for your device. 


If your child plays a woodwind or brass instrument, their lesson book comes with an access code to download the Interactive Practice Studio on your computer and/or ipad. You will need a microphone (many computers have a built-in microphone) in order use the Recording feature of this software. There are videos that introduce new concepts that are great for review or if your young musician missed class. There are also recordings of accompaniments to play along with. These accompaniments are especially helpful for beginning and developing students that are trying to build endurance. It's like having a band in your computer! See below for a link to the Interactive Practice Studio and links for mobile apps for Apple and Android as well.
