MUSICAL GROWTH:  Students will receive a grade for their individual musical growth each quarter.  The grade will be based on student preparation, musical improvement, and participation in rehearsal.

PERFORMANCE PARTICIPATION:  Attendance at all scheduled jazz and concert band performance events including the winter concert (December 13th), spring concert (May 21st) and the graduation performance (June 20th) is mandatory.  

TESTING:  Students are tested individually at the end of each marking period for scale and repertoire proficiency.  Testing may also include transcriptions, written tests on elements such as music vocabulary, rhythms, music theory and music history.

SECTIONALS:  Sectionals will be run on occasion within the band class.  Sections will be instructed to rehearse repertoire, scales, chamber music or other specific assignments.  Students will be graded on time-on-task and overall performance.
