Winter Concert Reflection is Due by Friday, February 7th
- All reflections must be typed and use Times New Roman 12 point font.
- All reflections must include: 1. Your name (first & last), 2. The date, 3. Your class section (for grade six), or which period you have music (for grade 7 or 8).
- All reflections must include the header: 2020 Winter Concert Reflection
Using music vocabulary and specific references to the music (i.e., which measures and which instrument or part), answer the following questions for EACH song: (I suggest a separate paragraph for each song).
- How did I perform?
- How did my instrument section perform?
- How did the full band perform?
Next, reflect on your fall semester in music class. Write a paragraph about what went well (i.e., what you were successful at) and what still needs improvement (i.e., what you struggled with).
Finally, based on what still needs improvement, list three goals for the spring semester. Each goal must include at least one sentence that explains why you have selected this as an area that needs attention or improvement.
Visit the recordings page to see the winter concert as a reference.
