Practice Slip Due:

Week of April 29th

LMS Orchestras

I am sorry that there was no weekly update last week. I had some technical difficulties!

Congratulations to the 6th graders on an AMAZING concert on the 18th! You all sounded fantastic and I am so proud of you!

Practice slips are due Monday, 4/29 (100 minutes.)

Each class will have a playing test this week. For each of the classes, students may choose to play lines 1 and 2 of the unit or lines 3 and 4. Grading criteria are as follows:

Counting out loud 2.5 points

Rhythms/bowings 2.5 points

Intonation/fingering 2.5 points

Posture/position 2.5 points

Total: 10 points

6th grade will have a test over Unit 18 on Thursday, 5/2

7th grade will have a test over Unit 36 on Friday, 5/3

8th grade will have a test over Unit 48 on Thursday, 5/2

We have some extra credit concert opportunities coming up:

4/30, 7:30 pm LMS Commons: LMS 6th grade Concert Band and 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Jazz Bands
5/3 and 5/4, 7:00 pm PHS Auditorium: PHS Choirs Rock Show
5/8, 7:30 pm, PHS Auditorium: PHS Orchestras Spring Concert

The 7th and 8th grade Orchestra and Band final concert has a DIFFERENT date. (This is different from the date that I’ve sent out already.) We had to make a change because we were conflicting with the PHS Senior Awards night. So, the 7th and 8th grade Orchestra and Band final concert will be Monday, June 3rd at 7:30 pm in the LMS Gym. I apologize for all of the changes!
