Who Are We?
The 7th grade band is made up of second and third year players. We will spend the year working on reviewing fundamentals, technical playing skills, and music theory. We will also learn to play challenging music and learn new music vocabulary.

What and Why?
Playing Tests are designed to help the students grow individually. Each band at Les Bois will have a weekly playing test over scales, rhythms, or concert music. This material will be covered in class, but students are expected to put the practice time in at home so that the ensemble as a group can grow. Below you will find the rubric for the playing test.
Scheduled Playing Tests
