Good morning MSMS Band. Here’s the info for this week:
- Chair Tests for 8th graders will begin the week of September 27. These will happen during the 1st period band class. Each student will play their chair test material for either Mr. Seay, Mrs. Hood, or Mr. Waters. Students can check their Google Classroom or this website for recordings of their prepared piece that they will be playing (in addition to their scales)
- 7th grade will be having their first chair test in the coming weeks. They will play Line 147 and Line 157 out of their Essential Elements Book 1. We will set the date for these chair tests this week and share that info ASAP.
