    Performances are mandatory. A note or email from the parent/gardian is required for an excused absence. Excused absences may complete a missed performance makeup assignment.
     
    No practice sheets are required this year. However, students are expected to practice daily to be prepared for class rehearsals, playing tests and all performances. Students will have routine playing tests to assess their abilities.
