december 2nd!

3rd period: gahu test is tuesday (speaking everything we know).  drums will be pulled out on monday.  keep on working on the songs.  A new song sheet  – with quite possibly the most impressive songs I have learned to this day – will be passed out on monday.  alternative band review for the 8th will be given out on tuesday after the test.

4th period: for monday, review “Away in the Manger.”  truly superb study would include learning all parts (soprano, alto, tenor and bass).  Singing is fun and it will help you become a better musician, regardless of your instrument.

Think about the song we listened to in class – we will discuss it more on monday.

6th period:  type in “Free Staff Paper Generator” in any search bar – google for example – and print off 5 pages of blank staff paper.  then three hole punch it in the face and then put it in your binder.  Additionally, go here and print off the picture of a one octave shot of the keyboard.  PUT IT IN YOUR BINDER!!  BINDER CHECK MONDAY!

8th period: great job today.  for those of you that did not do your homework, please do it.

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
