Grade 6 Band
The Grade 6's are demonstrating many great things.   This week we went beginning to end of some of our sheet music.   The Grade 6's quickly discovered that one of the challenges of sheet music is the length of time we are playing.  At first it is quite draining on our lips!    Students were asked to practice First Concert Parade, Let's Go Band, and Jingle Bells.   We will be performing all of these at our upcoming concert.  

Grade 7 Band
With the short week we did not have any full band rehearsals.    For those students we saw in sectionals we continued to work on subdividing rhythms, and our concert pieces.    We will be performing Frosty, Largo, Dance Celebration, Bunyip and In the Court of the King.   Students were asked to put practice priority on Frosty and In the Court of the King.

Grade 8 Band
As we prepare for our concert, we are putting the finishing touches on our 4 pieces.  We will be getting another piece at full band next week so that will make 5 pieces for our concert!  We've also just begun using our orange books for the Bach chorale on page 2.
