I just wanted to send a quick note clarifying how band "Requirements"work. Term 3 Band and Jazz Band requirements are due on April 5th by5:00pm. All band 9-12 classes and the two jazz bands have requirements consisting of scales and studies/"etudes". Performing these "assignments"is worth 20% of students' marks and they are looked at/rehearsed daily in our classes.
Your student has the following options for completing these:
1.) Play them in class in front of me and their peers.
2.) Submit a video recording to me (DVD, CD, Flashdrive, Tape etc.)
3.) Submit an audio recording to me (CD, Tape, mp3 file etc.)
*NEW* The band website now allows for online submissions. Students can record themselves playing their requirements and upload them directly tothe website. Only I can see these and the site is very secure.
Go to www.spectrumband.ca > Hover over the "Students" tab and > Click on"Requirements / Online Submissions" > Fill out the form and attach your mp3 or video files and upload them to the web (note: this may take a few moments to upload).
At this time, files can't exceed 20mb in size so one study or scale set per upload please.
***Copies of the current Requirements and Term Mark Break Downs are alsoavailable on this page. Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need help or have questions.
