PRACTICE RECORD GUIDELINES – PIEDMONT IB MIDDLE SCHOOL BAND                                                                                                          2012-2013
        All students are expected to list materials being practiced as well as the daily and weekly minutes. They will also be asked to list areas of accomplishment and possible
         improvement. Please also write the Daily Minutes (at the bottom of each day) as well as the Total Minutes for the Week (in the grey box).
        All students will be expected to practice individually AT LEAST 5 days a week for the following time: 6th Grade: 100 minutes a week, 7th Grade: 125 minutes a week,
         8th Grade: 150 Minutes a week,. The time requirement will account for 80 points of the grade. Students can count any time spent working on music outside of rehearsal as
         Practice Time. Another 20 points will be given based on the completion of the written portion and for turning it in on time. – There are no right or wrong answers, but the
         quality of the written statements will be evaluated.
         This will result in each week being worth a total of 100 points.
        Practice Records will be turned in every 3 weeks, at which time a new Practice Record will be assigned. They will be due AFTER the 3 week log is completed on the
         next class period unless otherwise specified in class.
        The rationale behind the Practice Record is to make it a useful tool for self-reflection and evaluation (rather than just a “time log” of minutes being put in), as well as
         encouraging students to keep track of their practice time and their progress from week to week. Please put thought into the written record of goals & accomplishments.
        Bonus time over the required amount will be counted as extra credit grade points.
        PREPARING YOUR MUSIC FOR PERFORMANCES AND LESSONS IS YOUR HOMEWORK FOR THIS CLASS, and it can have a tremendous impact on your
         overall grade.
        PARENTS – Your support is very important to your student and the band program. Please encourage your child to maintain a regular practice routine. Daily practice for
         at least 5 days a week is my recommendation if your child wishes to succeed in band. More is encouraged and sometimes necessary.
        Each log will have 3 HW checks (at the first class meeting each week) and count as a formal project grade when turned in at the end of three weeks.
