Assessment

Band marks are divided into two folders; Performance Concepts and Musical Concepts.

Performance concepts

Band performance tests are performed and assessed on an individual basis. Students have the opportunity to perform tests in class or to record them and submit them through Google Classroom. All assigned scales must be completed and checked off by the due date.

Technique studies and solos may also be assigned to be performed in class or submitted in Google Classroom on a specific date.

Rehearsal techniques will also be evaluated throughout the year.

Please encourage your children to practice regularly at home in order to be well prepared for band rehearsals and tests!

Musical Concepts (theoretical skills) will be evaluated through an online music theory program (Breezin’ Thru Theory), as well as through research assignments and projects.
