HOMEWORK FOR BAND STUDENTS
Guide to Practicing at Home
Understanding music homework can be difficult for non-musicians. Here's the simplest thing I can ask parents to help with this: "Have you heard your student practice at home today?" If not, I suggest that's where you start. If you did only that on a daily basis, you would aid their success on their instrument a great deal. Students should be putting in 20 minutes of home practice every day. Don't have 20 minutes today?... fine, start with 5. Any home practice is going to help their progress. Read on for suggestions on what to practice every day.
Daily Warm up Exercises that help with tone and technique for all grade levels (5 mins. daily)
Students have simple little warm up exercises we do every day in class. They are different for each type of instrument. The following are the instrument categories: Woodwinds: Flutes, Clarinets, Saxophones; Brass: Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone, Baritone, and Tuba; Percussion. Please suggest that they practice some of the following at the beginning of every home practice session:
Scales (5 - 10 mins. daily)
After these basic warm up exercises, students should practice scales. They have anywhere from 1 to 22 to choose from depending on their grade level, but they will always be focusing on a certain scale in class at a given point in time and should be practicing that scale and all other scales we have played before that. They should run through all scales they know once or twice every day. Percussionists can only play scales in class, but they also must play drum rudiments. These can be practiced on a practice pad, or even a book on top of a desk or table. Students will know what they are.
Band Music (5 - 10 mins. daily)
All band students have band music in their binder that they need to practice. The more they practice music at home, the better prepared they will be at band practices and the less time we will have to spend at practice learning notes and rhythms. The end result will be time to learn
more pieces of music which makes the whole learning process more fun and interesting for students.
SNOWSTORM BAND PRACTICE CANCELLATION POLICY
If school is cancelled due to inclement weather, band practices held on
that day are cancelled. IF THERE IS A ONE HOUR DELAY IN THE
MORNING DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER, MORNING PRACTICE FOR THAT DAY IS
CANCELLED. Any afternoon practices would go ahead as
- If there is an EARLY closure due to inclement weather, any after school band practices or activities would be cancelled also.
- If School is NOT cancelled or delayed there WILL be band practice that day. THE FINAL DECISION LIES WITH THE PARENT. IF A STUDENT ARRIVES LATE ON A DAY THAT ROADS ARE BAD, THE BAND ROOM DOOR WILL BE LEFT OPEN AND THEY WILL BE WELCOMED TO JOIN US AT ANY TIME THEY ARRIVE.

BAND MAGAZINE CAMPAIGN... SEPT 19 - Oct 2, 2018
September 19, 2018
MAGAZINE CAMPAIGN PARENT INFORMATION
East Wiltshire Band
students will start the annual Band Magazine Campaign TODAY!
The following letter will give you the information you
need about the campaign, please keep it on your fridge until the campaign is over to answer
questions that might come up.
The campaign runs from
Tuesday, Sept 19 until Tuesday, Oct
2. Students have two ways they can sell subscriptions, on paper or on line, on
line sales are the easiest. Either
way, the band get’s one third of the cover price of each magazine they
sell with all profits going to support extra curricular activities and
help keep parent costs to a minimum. While
I know the loathing parents feel towards yet “ANOTHER” fundraiser,
it’s the only way we can insure all parents feel comfortable in allowing
their child to participate in band regardless of financial status. We hope
you will support our campaign by helping your son/daughter identify
Sales Method # 1, On Line:
The easiest way to sell
magazines is on line (No
paper or money to lose). Students
can sell to customers anywhere in Canada this way and it is by far the
easiest one for us to process and help prevent errors.
Simply contact your customers in person, by email, Facebook, or
telephone and ask them to go to www.qsp.ca, OR just Google QSP.
Once at the QSP web page, click the blue "I'm ready to
shop" button. On
the next page click blue “Find My Group” button. .
Type in East Wiltshire and PEI and click “search”,
WILTSHIRE SCHOOL BAND will come up, click on that, then click
continue. Now type the name of
the band student you want to buy the magazine from and click next.
From here the customer can browse through the hundreds of magazines
in the catalog and proceed to the check out to complete their purchase by
credit card. It’s that easy
to support the EWS Band Program from the comfort of your own home giving a
specific band student credit for the sale. There are even some other items
available beside magazines that might interest you.
Sales Method # 2, Paper: The company that we work with to do our magazine campaign is QSP, Quality Service Programs. Today each student was given a QSP envelope containing a catalogue of all the magazines QSP offers its’ customers, and order forms. You fill out one order form for every different address that the student sells to. That means you can put the order of several people who live at the same address on one form. If a customer wants to pay using credit card, they need to fill out the pink section at the bottom of the form and SIGN IT. Best to have the customer fill out the credit card details themselves to eliminate errors. Once the subscription form is completed, the student rips off the pink copy on the bottom and gives it to the customer as a receipt. The white and yellow forms are passed in with the money for the subscriptions. I recommend customers stick the pink copy to their fridge until they get the first magazine. There will ONLY be 2 days students are asked to bring completed forms and money to the school, Tuesday, Sept. 25 and Tuesday, Oct 2. Of the two collection dates, the first one is the best time to bring subscriptions in, as students will earn twice the points they need to collect cool prizes at the end of the campaign. The kids will explain that one to you. Students are asked to bring forms and money to school sealed in a zip-lock baggy so they don’t lose money. It’s best to put all the forms and the baggy containing the cash or checks inside the QSP envelope, seal it, and place it securely inside a kit bag. Please remind the students that forms and money are only collected at lunch time so please LOCK the QSP envelope containing the money in their locker until then. PLEASE DO NOT CARRY THE ENVEOLPE AROUND IN THE KIT BAG FROM CLASS TO CLASS AS IT INVITES THEFT!
**Please remember: ALL
CHECKS NEED TO BE MADE PAYABLE TO: EAST WILTSHIRE SCHOOL
Thanks in advance to all our customers for your support.
If you have any questions
or concerns, please contact Mr.
Nabuurs by phoning 368-4130 ext. 232 or dropping him an email at email@example.com.
