To the student:

Congratulations on completing beginning band! I am sure that you learned a great deal about music and
your instrument. Now it is time to build on that knowledge, and take your musicianship to the next
level. You will have many more performance opportunities, and you will find greater musical
challenges in the year ahead.
The key to continued success in band is practice. Your band director will recommend how much time
you should practice each day. Keep these tips in mind during each practice session:
Warm up. your band director will recommend a procedure for preparing your body and your
instrument to play.
Set a goal for each practice session.
Practice the hard sections first, and break them down into smaller parts. Then put the parts
together.
Play something fun at the end of each practice session.
Practice every day.
Continue working with your band director and your classmates, and you will begin to see and hear big
improvements in the quality of your band. Good luck, and have fun!
