    Please read the following statements before signing:

    1.Students must make all madatory rehearsals or they can not go (that includes prescheduled trips,

    family activities, being sick or forgetting to come).  That seems very strict, but with only 4.5 hours

    of rehearsal, I need to have them prepared and I need that time.  Note: I cannot make up the final

    pratice.  If a student misses that practice, they will not be able to finalize their 4.5 hour

     requirement.  Sorry.

    2.Students are expected to practice their music on their own.  They need to have the music in hand

    before coming to a rehearsal. 

    3.Students must bring a pencil, music (they get 1 copy only) and whatever items they need for their


    4. Grades will not affect this (for this year), but behavior in school will.

    5. Students will be at rehearsal ON TIME (not 1 minute late) with music/pencil and instrument parts.

    6. Student need to have all measures of their music numbered as soon as they get the music.
