Performance Tempo

Unless otherwise noted in the example, play-offs must be performed with metronome at the setting: 90 beats per minute. In class, students may sometimes request a faster tempo.

 

Level Advancement

Students receive an "A" grade for their play-offs each time they advance one level -or- maintain level 7. 

To advance to Symphonic Band for the following year, beginners must demonstrate panther PRIDE (i.e. follow the code of conduct) and complete level 6.
