At the beginning of each school year, I give each student a copy of the Band Handbook. Students' first assignment is to read this with their parents, and then return the last page (the agreement) signed by both the parent and the student. The Band Handbook includes a welcome letter, grading policies, concert information, classroom and lesson expectations/procedures, rental information, and more! Help to simplify your overall year by giving all the information students and families will need on day one of the school year! This can be adjusted to fit any grade level and/or music subject.
