What do students
need to do to succeed in band?
- Bring your instrument, supplies, and music
to band every class.
- Practice your instrument at home for thirty
(30) minutes each day at least five (5) days a week.
- Be patient. You will not sound like a professional
at first. Practicing each day will help you sound good (soon) and feel
good about playing your instrument.
do parents need to do to help their child succeed in band?
- Acquire an instrument, maintenance and cleaning
supplies. Obtain the method book (during orientation) and a music stand
to use at home to practice.
- Establish daily practice times and places.
The method book has a place in the back where you should record your
practices. The director will check your record weekly.
- Encourage your child to play for you as often
as possible. Also have them perform whenever and wherever possible.
Can they perform church hymns at your church? what other opportunities
can be found?

Learning an instrument and playing with a band
is one of the most exciting activities of which you can be a part! Better
than that- it is a skill that will stay with students through adulthood.
And students, the longer you stick with it, the more fun you will have.
We look forward to hearing you in band!!!!
