• 2020 – 2021 SHS Band Quarterly Evaluations

    Name: ___________________________________

    Each SHS Band member should own a copy of the Rubank Advanced Method, Volume I for their instrument. Books are available at local music merchants’ stores or through various internet sites. Please see Mrs. Trees immediately if you need help obtaining a copy!

    Each instrument family has 3 exercises out of the Rubank Advanced Method Book Vol. I, unless otherwise noted – those books being Rubank Beginner & Rubank Intermediate, that must be played for a grade every quarter.  Students are welcome to perform the examples more than once (the highest grade will be kept). The material will be covered in Rotations during the quarter and it is the student’s responsibility to be sufficiently prepared. A minimum of 4 rotations per quarter must be attended, regardless if a Rotation Pass is denied.

    All material, except for Mallet Percussion, is from Advanced Method Units 1 through 4. It is recommended the students review the entire lesson, and work on the material in advance.  Grading will be based purely on number of errors. Extra help will be made available and is recommended.

    Please note: For Duets, both parts should be mastered and it is expected that 2 students (students’ choice of partner on like instrument) will play the duet together. It is recommended that the duet be practiced together outside of school. DT = Double Tongue. Clarinets, be sure to alternate pinkies!

    During Quarters 1 through 3, one example (students’ choice of which exercise) must be played by the end of week 3; another by the end of Week 6; last one by the end of Week 9. During 4th Quarter, one exercise must be played by the end of Week 2, another by the end of Week 4; last one by the end of Week 6.
