Band students prepare for tomorrow’s test

Students in band class spent part of class time today preparing for tomorrow’s test.  7th graders have a playing test over line 163 tomorrow (Eb concert major scale).  They also received their first signature sheet today in class and filled in the blanks about staccato, tenuto, and sightreading using their books.  8th graders have a playing test over Rawhide and Can’t Turn You Loose tomorrow.  They spent most of today in sectionals working on the music together.  6th graders have a test over concepts from pages 1-9 out of the book.  They also continued their blitz today, knocking out pages 12 and 13.  Tomorrow is tie day, an annual tradition for 6th grade band students when they reach page 14 in the book, which introduces the concept of the tie in music.
