Rehearsal vs. Practice

Each class period that we meet with the bands is a rehearsal where we work mostly on group musical issues. All OWHS Band Students should be practicing their instrument and music outside of class, this gives them a chance to work on individual aspects of their instrument and music.

Please ask your child about their practice habits and please encourage them to practice their instrument outside of class. This will make our rehearsals run smoother, the bands will perform at a higher level, and it will allow us to teach so much more to each student each class period. Practice should be considered "homework" for band.
