Students are given experience in reading music as well as performing and interpreting a wide variety of artistic styles. Students are encouraged to critically analyze music and play an active role in the selection of music and the organization of their performances.

7 COME TO CLASS PREPARED Students need their instruments every day. A record will be kept of how many times a student forgets to bring his/her instrument to class. If an instrument is left at home 4 times during a grading period, the student's grade will drop one level (i.e. a grade of an 4 will become a 3). Students may not call home to request a parent to bring an instrument to school. Failure to play due to instrument repair or bodily injury will not affect a student's grade. If an instrument is being repaired, the student should bring a note from home stating that the instrument is being repaired and when the repair should be finished. Instruments should be kept in good playing condition. Brass musicians need to have valve oil and a cleaning rag. Woodwinds need to have the proper reeds and keep at least 3 good reeds in their case at all times!

8 PARTICIPATION Every student is expected and required to participate in the activities of the class. If a student does not have his/her instrument or is unable to play, the student is still expected to follow all instruction. Lack of participation in class will affect the student's grade.

9 MUSIC Each student must bring their music to class everyday. This includes the Standards of Excellence book and/or any sheet music received. Every student should have a binder for sheet music and some plastic sheet protectors with three whole punches for the binder music. Students also need a pencil for every rehearsal.

10 PRACTICE & HOMEWORK At home instrument practice is a requirement. Students will need to practice to prepare for playing tests, chairing tests, and concerts. They will need to keep a record of time practiced. Time practiced should be logged in the students agenda, stating time practiced and music practiced There will be Music theory and Music history assignments assigned. See schedule for the due dates.

11 CONCERTS AND REHEARSALS All concerts are graded. Just by being on time and playing in the concert, a student will receive an 4 for that performance. If there is a conflict with any of the concert dates, the student/parent must inform Mr.. Sprague at least two weeks prior to the performance date in order to have a chance to do make-up work. Most rehearsal time will be done during the regular school day. An occasional after school rehearsal may be scheduled in preparation of a performance. Advance warning will be given for any extra rehearsals. Because a performance is a grade, it is mandatory and should be considered a priority for all students.
