Mr. Bresnahan's Practicing Philosophy:

  • My philosophy is that students should be practicing for "success" not an arbitrary number of minutes. Students are given an assignment each week that they SHOULD be practicing. However, the amount of time it takes each student to be successful with their assignment can vary greatly. Students are evaluated in their weekly lesson on how well they are performing the assigned materials.

Much of the philosophy of Mr. Bresnahan's Band program can be found in the handbook. Also in here is the grading policy, goals, objectives, classroom expectations, rules, and general policies. Follow this link to get to all the information:
