Each student will come in for a weekly 25-minute lesson. Students are organized into lesson groups, and each lesson group comes in the same day each week. For example, if you’re in the “Trumpet Monday” group, your lesson is every Monday. If you’re in the “Trumpet Wednesday” group, your lesson is every Wednesday.
We don’t want students to miss the same class, so the time rotates to a different period each week. For example, during the first week (“Week A”), the Clarinet Monday group meets on Monday at the beginning of Period 1. The next week (“Week B”), the Clarinet Monday group meets on Monday at the beginning of Period 2, and so on. In addition to the weekly schedule the list of lesson groups posted above, printed copies are also posted in the LMS Band Room, and in the window of the 6th-Grade pod.
On the day of your lesson, come into the MS Band Room before school with your instrument and book. Place your instrument on a shelf, and your book in the rack. Then head back to your morning Advisory room.
A few minutes before your lesson is to begin, quietly ask your teacher if you may go to your lesson. Come down to the MS Band Room, grab your instrument and book, and we’ll play for 25 minutes. I’ll also check your Practice Calendar to see that it’s been filled out. If the previous week is filled out and totalled up, and SIGNED by a parent, you get an A for the lesson!
After your lesson is over you’ll return to your classroom, quietly slip back into the room, and quietly find out from a nearby student what you missed while you were gone. At the end of the day, come back to the MS Band Room to pick up your instrument and book.
