Welcome to Mr. Dilworth's Band
-Success is found in a little bit of practice every day-
About our program
5th and 6th Grade Musicianship Program
Students will learn the very basic set up, playing techniques, and music reading skills required to play the instrument they have chosen. It is a classroom rehearsal and self paced course. The rehearsal portion of this class is based out of the book essential elements 2000 and on the music selected for the end of year concert. The self paced portion is based on our unit goals. Each student has a copy every goal for the unit on what we call the pass off sheet. The students are encouraged to pass off at least one of those goals every day we meet, which is about once a week. They are also encouraged to pass off more if they would like to.
The class is expected to practice a little bit every day to help develop the muscle and muscle memory necessary for playing these instruments. The pass off sheet and essential elements book offers them material to practice. With a little bit of practice every day students to be able to pass something off every week.
Here are some downloadable versions of their pass off sheets:
