Quitman Junior High Bands



Assignments Page

Students have a practice log that parents are to sign each week.  These are due on the first day of the week.

Students are being assigned at least one playing test per week, sometimes two.  These test may be taken using the Flipgrid app mentioned in the information and permission form given to students on October 15.  This is an excellent low-stress alternative to playing in front of the entire class.  


Current Assignments:

  • ALL students should have their book in class each day.  If they have lost it, please go to MS Music and purchase a new one.  It is part of their daily grade.
  • ALL students should be performing the "PIE GAME" rhythm sheet front and back.   
  • ALL students should be able to play all sixth/seventh grade level scales/rudiments.  If not click the link below for the scale sheets.
  • ALL students have work to do every night in this class.
  • ALL students MUST have instruments, music, pencils and other needed supplies EVERY DAY.

Even after a year, we are finding that many students are just not studying note names at all and are falling behind.  Here is an easy and fun game that can help them with this. It can be customized to match the clef that their instrument plays in.  HERE

Several students struggle with keeping a steady beat when playing in class. Using a metronome every day will be very beneficial. There are numerous FREE apps available just type in the word 'metronome' and search or just type in 'metronome on Google and a usable one pops up immediately that requires no download.

We are hearing many excuses from students so we are trying to provide some resources that can be utilized outside of class.
