CONCERT BAND TESTING:
Your Concert  Band Grade Is Based on the following Items:
DAILY PARTICIPATION:  40%
PERFORMANCES: 40% TESTS 20%
Students will earn 100 points per week. Participation  & Attendance (tardies) will be counted against the weekly points.  Instruments & Music must be taken home on Wednesdays and Fridays.  Music only on Mondays.

Below are listed the penalities for several situations.
A Performance is the culmination of weeks of hard work and team practice.  Your attendance and participation at a Performance is your grade.  In the case of excused absences, students will perform the selections from the     performance individually for a grade.  This will be scheduled with a director  and will take place after school     hours.  A student who has an excused absence,  but does not complete their playing test,  will receive a 0 for the  performance.    ALL UNEXCUSED absences will be recorded as 0’s 
Each quarter you  must complete  2 recordings of yourself playing selected music.  One recordings must be practice   sessions of at least 15 minutes and one must be a “performance” recording.   Performance tapes will be graded on musical accuracy and are counted as twice the weight of a practice tape.   You  may also substitute a Practice or  Performance tape with on of the following items.  (TTEF  Tape Test Exemption Form)  (PTTEF Practice Tape Exemption Forms).
