IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW:

  • Do your best. You may not be able to play everything at the recommended tempos, but still learn the pieces.

  • Mr. Dudzinski wants to see how accurately you and play the selections. Practice with a tuner and a metronome.

  • Ask for help if you need it. Ask your band teacher or private lesson teacher. You can even send Mr. Dudzinski a video of sections for which you would like feedback!
