    General Class Information

    Music grades are based on class participation and written work.  I send home corrected written work every week, so you should see your child's progress and grades.  Participation is based on your child's involvement during class.  If the child is engaged in the lesson then their grade will be 100%.  Talking and or disturbing other classmates will be a deduction in their participation grade because they are not engaged in the lesson and are disrupting the class.  Work can be corrected and brought back in for a higher grade during that marking period.

    Pre-recorders will begin in January 2016 for the Third Grade students.  The children learn the instrument in class and then take them home at the end of February to begin practice for their concert in the Spring.  Failure to bring the pre-recorder back 3 times during the 3rd. or 4th. marking period will result in failing the class for that marking period.
