6th Grade Beginning Band
6th Grade Beginning Band is offered first semester ONLY.
This is a second opportunity for Scottsbluff students to join the Band program. The Sixth Grade Beginning Band program is available to those sixth grade students who did not join band in their 5th grade year. The class is held Monday through Friday during the school day for the first semester. If the students choose to do so, they then join the Sixth Grade Band at the beginning of the second semester. The students will also join the Sixth Grade Band for their Holiday Concert in December.
AT HOME PREPARATION: A students progress in band will depend on what is achieved during daily home practice sessions. Learning takes place at school, but proficiency is gained at home.
Students are expected to take their instruments home daily and on weekends.
Students will see more improvement if they practice daily for shorter periods of time than if they try to do all of their practicing in one weekend. In other classes, students have homework. In band, a students homework is their practice time at home.
Parents, a key element to your childs success on his/her instrument will be your support. Very rarely will a child practice without having to be told. Practicing, to the student, becomes a chore, but it is a cycle; practice makes you good, which leads to fun and makes you want to play your instrument more. With the proper guidance and support from you, both you and your child will see the benefits of good practice. Please refer to the back of the practice record or to the web site for some guidlines to help your child at home.
***Reminder: Your REQUIRED practice sheets are DUE each MONDAY (or the first day of the week).
