Other Information

  • If you do not own a smart device or cannot bring your instrument home, you may record and submit your Playing Quiz using the school's handheld recorder. Talk to your teacher about setting up a time to do this.
  • You may only submit one video, so record as many "takes" as you want and submit the best one.
  • The use of a metronome during your recording is not only allowed, but highly encouraged!
  • Late submissions will be accepted for reduced credit until the date of the performance, at which point any assignment that is not turned in will become a zero.
