8th graders continued to make progress on their marching show today. Students rehearsed together and then broke off into sectionals before returning to play the songs together at the end of class. Tomorrow they have a playing test over Gimme Some Lovin’ and the Fight Song (On Salina).
7th graders played lines 6-9 and worked with a partner to prepare for tomorrow’s playing test over line 159 (Bb Concert Scale).
The 6th grade band continued their blitz through the book today, knocking out lines 14 through 25. Then they had a note-naming competition between sections using the note trainer from musictheory.net. The winning sections will not have to take the test over note names tomorrow. Congratulations to the clarinets and the bass clef team (trombones, tubas, bass clef baritones)! Tomorrow’s note-naming test is available online for students to practice.
