When does band take place?
Band at Nottingham will be held in the morning, starting at 8AM. A finalized schedule will be sent home with students who sign up for band. For planning purposes, here is the basic outline, which is still subject to some changes depending on enrollment:


BAND SCHEDULE 

 

Monday 8:00-8:40AM – Flute and oboe

  • Tuesday 8:00-8:40AM – Brass (trumpet, French Horn, trombone, baritone)
  • Wednesday 8:00-8:40 – Percussion
  • Thursday 8:00-8:40AM – Clarinet
  • Friday 8:00-8:40AM – Alto Saxophone

As we approach our spring performance, our schedule will be subject to change so that we can rehearse in larger groups, and eventually with the whole band.

When will lessons begin?
Lessons will begin in January 2020. Students should attend their weekly rehearsal before school and come prepared with their instrument, band book, and a pencil.

PRACTICE LOGS

Home Practice
Student success requires home practice! Students must commit to 45-60 minutes per week. It is best to break this up into practice sessions of 15 minutes / 3-4 nights per week. Students must log their practice – they will be given assigned material to practice. 


**Practice is Import** 


Students enrolled in band are required to practice their instrument. Practicing is an important part of learning any instrument. Without consistent practice it is impossible to learn and improve on skills. Practice logs not signed by a parent will not be accepted.
