Participation in music ensembles is a fantastic way of encouraging self-expression, </p><p>creativity, critical thinking, teamwork, leadership, aural proficiency, and so many other skills essential for building a well-rounded individual! </p><p>Not only will students be learning how to perform on their specific instrument in large and small ensembles, they will be learning and creating music from throughout history </p><p>and around the world, composing their own pieces, listening to great musicians, improvising, and so much more! </p><p>We have some amazing opportunities this year! </p><p>Im incredibly excited to kick off the school year with another great group of students! </p><p>Take a few minutes to look through this handbook. It provides some very important information for this year in band. Please sign electronically sign </p><p>and return the Policy Approval Form (page 10) by Friday, September 1st. If you have any questions, dont hesitate to email Mrs. Moriearty at erin.moriearty@bvsd.org! Otherwise, </p><p>I look forward to seeing you all at Back-to-School-Night! </p><p>Table of Contents </p><p>Classroom Policies and Expectations.3 Grading Policy..4 Private Lesson Information..5 Area Music/Repair Stores.5 Extra-curricular Performance Opportunities6 Concert Dress7 Instrument Information.7 Tips for Efficient Practice..8 Calendar of Events.9 Contact Form..10</p><p>mailto:erin.moriearty@bvsd.org</p></li><li><p>3 </p><p>Classroom Policies and Expectations </p><p>Attendance </p><p>We are a community that relies on the participation and attendance of all members. </p><p>Attendance at all events, both inside and outside of the school day, is mandatory. </p><p>All concert performance and other event dates will be announced at the beginning of the school year. If a student has a conflict with an event, they must contact Mrs. Moriearty with a note from a guardian at least </p><p>one month in advance of the conflict. </p><p>Participation and Practice </p><p>Excellent attitude, effort, participation and preparation are essential! Make the commitment. </p><p>There is always something to be practiced for rehearsal! If youre not sure what that is, check the blog on the webpage or email Mrs. Moriearty. I recommend 15-45 minutes a day, four to six days a week </p><p>(depending on grade level and goals). See page 8 for some tips on getting the most out of your practice. </p><p>1. Respect others. 2. Only touch and play your instrument. 3. Do not chew gum or eat in the band room. 4. Only water is allowed as a drink. 5. Be in your seat, ready to play or complete your DO NOW activity, at the beginning of rehearsal and stay in your seat (unless instructed otherwise) until dismissed. 6. Try your best! </p><p>Possible Consequences </p><p>Verbal Warning Contact Parents </p><p>Note on Report Card Detention </p><p>Referral to Office Suspension from </p><p>Performance/Event </p><p>All students must have the following at each rehearsal: </p><p>1. Instrument </p><p>2. Music </p><p>3. Pencil </p><p>4. Band Notebook and Method Book (see page 7) </p><p>5. Appropriate Supplies (valve oil, cork grease, extra reeds, sticks, etc.) </p><p>6. LMS Planner (to note assignments/important dates) </p></li><li><p>4 </p><p>Grading Policy </p><p>Complete musicianship requires performance skills as well as a great deal of knowledge and ability to critically think about and evaluate music and subject matter associated with it. Therefore, students will be participating in a wide range of activities designed to assess their comprehensive knowledge of and skills in music. An outline of the grade allocation and breakdown for each semester can be seen below. </p><p> Keep in mind that I encourage students to make up/redo most work (especially playing tests) throughout </p><p>the grading period. Redos and make ups stop 2 weeks before the end of the grading period. </p><p>If, at any time, there are questions about student grades, parents should feel free to call or email and set up a conference to view the students portfolio of work. </p><p> For Each Semester: Practice: 10% Homework, Practice Journals, Do Now Activities, etc. Formative Assessment: 40% Daily Playing Tests, Sight-Reading, Rhythm-Clapping, Quizzes, Self/Peer/Ensemble Evaluation, etc. Summative Assessment: 50% Written Tests, Major Playing Tests (including concerts), Projects, etc. Grading Scale: A = 90 100% B = 80 89% C = 70 79% D = 60 69% F = 59% and below </p><p>Tutor Times I am here before school most days from 7:30 a.m. 8:30 a.m. </p><p>and after school some days from 3:45 p.m. 4:30 p.m. HOWEVER: </p><p>Tutor times are best set up in advance by email due to my many after/before school responsibilities (LMS jazz bands, concerts, commitments with my other school, MELT, faculty meetings, etc.) </p></li><li><p>5 </p><p>Private Lessons </p><p>All students are highly encouraged to take private lessons on their instrument. These lessons allow for more one-on-one time than a large group rehearsal. Students are able to move at their own pace and </p><p>concentrate on areas in which they may be weak or areas in which they are especially interested. Below is a list of recommended instructors for each instrument. </p><p>Name Instruments Taught Phone Email Malia Van Rooy Flute (303)514-5722 malia.vanrooy@gmail.com </p><p>Emma Shubin Flute (585)704-5751 emma.shubin@gmail.com </p><p>Alaunde Copely-Woods Flute (720)406-8722 alaunde@gmail.com </p><p>Kristen Puster Flute (720)878-6611 kristen.puster@gmail.com </p><p>Steven Maijala Oboe (256)566-2496 steven.maijala@gmail.com </p><p>Jason Olney Clarinet (208)339-4090 Jason.Olney@gmail.com </p><p>Karen Dusek Clarinet (303)378-3942 KarenDusek.clarinet@gmail.com </p><p>April Johannsen Clarinet (303)746-0683 www.apriljohannesen.com </p><p>Christopher Harmon Clarinet (719)502-9787 Chha4568@colorado.edu </p><p>Kellan Toohey Clarinet (303)981-2940 kellantoohey@gmail.com </p><p>Michael Maisonpierre Clarinet, Saxophone (303)786-9540 mmaisonpierre@mac.com </p><p>J.D.
