     Helpful reminders:

    • you should be practicing at least 4 days a week. SCHEDULE your practice time with your other homework.
    • keep a cycle calendar easily in sight to you know when to bring your instrument. Pack it the night before with your backpack.
    • write in your practice times on your practice chart and have your parent sign it.
    • if you are struggling with the notes, take a step back; name and finger the notes first. Keep you scale sheet handy as a reference.
    • if you are struggling with the rhythm, write in the counts, clap and count the rhythm.
    • Mrs. Spies is always available for extra help during homeroom.
