CHECK-OFFS
New for 2017: All check-offs and playing tests will be submitted online using student Chromebooks through Google classroom.
A “check-off” is a short exercise from our method book that the student will submit on Google classroom at his/her convenience. Students are required to prepare and record 9 selected check-offs per trimester. The students are given the entire year’s list of check-offs during the first week of school. This allows the students that can’t wait to play their check-offs the opportunity to move at a faster pace. However, if playing an instrument requires a little more work for a student, he/she can set a pace that is more comfortable. The goal of this class is for every student to understand and perform excellently and thus students are allowed as many chances as they need to submit and pass a check-off.
Students may be permitted to perform check-offs in person at the discretion of the director.

Students will receive each Portfolio at the beginning of each trimester. The main purpose of the Portfolio is to give students additional music to play that is not tested or graded. These are just for fun!
