Practice Logs / Extra Credit
Distance Learning and Practice Assignments have concluded for the 19-20 school year.
Absence make-up work policy*
*Not in effect during distance learning
If a student misses class they must make up the missed playing time by coming in at lunch or after school to practice or by practicing at home and video recording and then sending a link to the video upload to Mr. B (ex: private YouTube link). Students will practice their practice assignment as that is what we work on in class as well. The time required for 6th graders will be 15 minutes of make up per band class missed. The make up time required for 7th/8th grade will be 20 minutes for missing a regular day or 40 minutes for a block day. Students have the amount of days absent plus one to complete the make-up work and have the absence cleared (per WCSD policy).
Extra Credit Concerts
Students are encouraged to see musical performances outside of what they experience at Depoali. This helps you grow as a musician. If a student attends an approved concert, to receive extra credit they must turn in the concert program with a one-paragraph review of the event (in full sentences). This assignment is worth 50 points per concert. If you would like to attend a concert that is not listed below, please contact Mr. B for approval. See concert list below and ask Mr. B to see about approval for a concert not listed.
