Concert Band Summer Assignment

  • Hi Everyone:
     
    I would like to start the year running with our Concert Band this year. You will find on this site links to music files, scales and an audio file that will help you to understand how the music files should sound. You need to prepare for the first day of school. I will expect everyone to have their instrument that day so that you may play for me the music and scales found on this site. This will be for a grade so you want to be sure that you are prepared. We are going to set up like a Jazz Band this year and play fun and interesting music that will mostly be in the Jazz Band style. This is why I want you to prepare the music. This will be the first song we learn to play this year. When you play the scales for me you may play them one or two octaves. I know that most freshman are still developing their ranges. You will need to play the following scales for me, at least one octave. C, F, Bb, Eb and Ab in concert key as well as much of the chromatic scale as you can possibly do.
     
    If you have questions, please email me at william.strickler@lcps.org
     
    See you in band,
    Mr. S.
