In addition to weekly rehearsals, students participate in weekly sectional rehearsals that are based on a rotating schedule throughout the day.

     Attending the required weekly large group rehearsals is essential to a quality experience for the student and ensures excellence in the music program. Missing three or more rehearsals or three or more lessons/sectionals can hinder student progress and may hinder the musical progress of the student.  Of course, situations arise and we always encourage speaking with the director to work through this - child, parent and teacher. The ensemble director will notify you if your student has missed a third rehearsal or third ensemble/sectional so that you are aware of the situation.

     Concert Band is a co-curricular program and students are graded on a letter scale: O = Outstanding, S = Satisfactory, and U = Unsatisfactory. Rehearsal attendance, sectional attendance, participation, and attitude are the contributing factors to students grades.
