This course is open to students interested in learning about the fundamentals of music. Music notation, harmony, rhythm, form, musical dictation, and sight-reading will be studied. This course is meant for students wishing to develop a basic working knowledge of music.  Enrollment is dependent on the instructor's approval.  Students have daily lessons that are reinforced with our midi computer lab.  worksheets, workbooks, computer programs, reading and writing music are incorporated.  It is suggested that each student constantly practices ear training on their own. The daily singing of solfeggio and keyboard skills are suggested. Each student is required to purchase a keyboard for music theory assignments. www.musictheory.net   www.teoria.com 

Instrumental Lessons 

Lessons are scheduled for each student once a week on a rotating basis.  A copy of this schedule is sent to the faculty and is posted in the band room each week.  Practicing, preparation and attendance for lessons are graded.  If a student is absent the day of a lesson, it must be made up.  If a student needs to miss a lesson for any reason, they must inform Mr. Dellosa at the beginning of the day so they are not marked absent.  Every student is required to make up every lesson for a grade.

 

Concert & Marching Band Performances

Students join the bands to perform at each performance and rehearsal is graded.  The Memorial Day performance is mandatory and double graded.  If there is a conflict for any performance due to a family obligation, it is the responsibility of the student to notify Mr. Dellosa at the beginning of the year, not the day before the event. In the event of illness, students are required to provide a Doctor's note.  If there are any last-minute emergencies, please contact Mr. Dellosa directly.
