We have only 3 SYNCHRONOUS days per week, therefore it is CRUCIAL for your student to attend our Zoom synchronous lessons. Students that attend band Zoom meetings learn and develop NEW concepts! Parents PLEASE make sure your child completes their attendance google form DURING their scheduled band class.
-If a student has a private lesson during class, be sure they go back to their Google Classroom and “Mark as Done” for attendance purposes.
-Students should practice their instrument every day during their assigned band class. (Even on asynchronous days).
