Studying an instrument at RFIS; Expectations:
Studying an instrument at RFIS allows students to take music lessons during the school day. Along with the fun of playing an instrument, it also requires the commitment to practice regularly and being responsible. It is a commitment to yourself and your classmates because band members depend on each other for the band’s success.
In order to continue the music excellence that RFIS is known for, students are expected to:
1. BE RESPONSIBLE: Coming prepared on your lesson day and your band rehearsal day with instrument & music.
2. GIVE YOUR BEST EFFORT: Regular practice is absolutely necessary for success; 5 days a week is ideal. Use the practice methods taught in lessons and you will see great progress! Schedule your practice time like you schedule your other homework.
3. BE RESPECTFUL: of your peers, your teachers and your equipment.
Good luck! And remember, all the music teachers are here to help you in your musical journey!
Thanks for all your support! See you at the concert!Mrs. Spies
