Big reeds who have taken the lead in Average Minutes Practiced. Tubas who have taken the lead in Number of Members Participating. To see the break-down of all sections CLICK HERE. DO NOT GIVE UP! THERE IS STILL PLENTY OF TIME FOR THINGS TO CHANGE!
Do not forget, Summer Practice Challenge officially starts tomorrow, but any practice minutes you enter this week, will be added to next week. Currently, the color guard is in the lead! YES you can count the time you were at SECTIONALS. Enter those minutes! If you do not know how to enter your practice minutes, follow the instructions below.
Back by popular demand is our “SUMMER PRACTICE CHALLENGE!” As you all know, the only true way to improve as a performer is to practice on your own. We meet as a group to put our sounds together as an ensemble, but personal practice is when you actually get better at your craft.
Two years ago, we started the Summer Practice Challenge to reward students for their practice accomplishments. We will continue with this again this summer. So … How does it work?
Below are the details that you need to know.
What is the reward?
On top of it all, we will also choose a SINGLE INDIVIDUAL MEMBER WINNER for each week. If you practice the most of ALL BAND MEMBERS the first week, then you will be the WEEK’S WINNER! At the end of the five week challenge, there will be five winners that will have a pizza party, after lights out, at band camp!
Some important things to remember …
You can also keep track of your sections progress by going to the band website and clicking on SUMMER PRACTICE CHALLENGE. We will be updating this page almost on a daily basis so that you can see your sections progress. This page can be very helpful to see how close each section is to each other.
The Summer Practice Challenge starts MONDAY!!!! GOOD LUCK EVERYONE! May the best section WIN.
