Here’s what the next few days should look like:

PLAY YOUR INSTRUMENT DAILY AND SEND RECORDINGSScroll down on this page to see copies of Book 1 and Book 2 passoff lines

if you left your instrument up at Warren let us know, our ability to get into the building is limited but we may be able to work with you.

The students have scale sheets, EPOs, Solos, and Band Music to work on. Click HERE to hear professional recordings for your solo (all will be up by 3/19). There is plenty to keep working on. If you need any help let us know.

We plan to utilize this web page heavily for the time being. Please keep checking back for extra information!

Next week we will transition a bit more into online work, but for now, just keep playing! Both Mr. Hughes and Mr. Russell are available during this time. Email/call us with any questions or issues.

Recordings and EPO’s

Each week at least 4 EPOs (Electronic Pass-Off) are required for full credit. The students are obviously free to send us more than 4 a week. These recordings need to happen on 4 separate days. For example, 4 recordings on Monday will only get your child credit for ONE DAY. We need 4 recordings, on 4 separate days, for full credit.

Parents: remind your kids that they need to be practicing as much as they are able, and to send EPO’s to us!

A half hour a day is sufficient, but every extra minute counts! The students have been instructed in the proper procedures of recording and sending EPO’s. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact Mr. Russell or myself.
