Students should attend all lessons with their instrument(s), music book/folder/sheet music, and a pencil. 7th+8th graders are expected to bring their laptops to all lessons.
Students are expected to practice 20 minutes per night or 100 minutes per week. This amount of practice should guarantee their success on their music which should make their rehearsals much more enjoyable. 7th+8th graders are strongly encouraged to use their SmartMusic software on their netbooks when they practice.
