    Welcome to Band!

    I am excited that you will be joining me in band this year. I am eager to get started and make music with all of you! As we begin the new year, please remember my classroom rules:

    1. Be on time and prepared.
    2. Be respectful.
    3. Have a good attitude.

    No matter how skilled you are coming into 7th grade band, everyone will have fun and learn a lot as long as you follow these rules and apply yourselves. We are going to have a great year!

  • This Week's Practice Log

    Weekly Practice Logs

    All students in the National Trail Middle School Band Program will be required to complete at least 60 minutes a week of practice (in addition to the regular 2-3 days a week of class).  This is equivalent to practicing 12-15 minutes a day, four to five days a week.   Musical performance is a physical activity which requires frequent repetition of newly acquired skills.  My recommendation is to pick a time each day to spend practicing and stick to it. 


    The student with the highest total logged minutes at the end of each quarter will receive a PRIZE!

    If you lost the sheet, I have attached an extra to print off. Let Ms. Norrod know if you have any questions
