    6th grade Band: This band is sounding really good – it all has to do with the amount of practice they are putting in!!! (FYI – Our first concert is on Tuesday, December 14)The test piece for this Friday is #59 on pg. 16. Try working as far ahead in your book as you can get. Remember to always play with a good tone and great rhythm!!! There is a real nice solo on page 34 in your book that you should start working on.Pieces to practice: “Holiday Sampler”, “March of the Spartans” & “Eagle Summit March”You will receive a new piece to start work on this week as well!!!

    7th and 8th grade Bands: Both bands have three new pieces of music to be working on. (Keep Honor March & March Del Mar fresh for this Wednesday)

    7th – Parade of the Tin Soldiers, Fireburst Fanfare, The Great American Frontier
    8th – Cantique De Noel, Forest Brook Overture, The Impossible Machine
