6th Grade Weekly Call-In Assignments

Your band homework is to practice 20 minutes, 4 days per week. On one of those days, you need to call 314.594.7329, state your name and instrument and play the assignment below.

Call-Ins are due every Sunday and usually require you to use a metronome. I recommend that you purchase the app Tonal Energy ($4) and use it as a tuner and metronome. Any of the free downloadable metronome apps are fine as well. The website www.metronomeonline.com or typing “metronome” into google will also give you a metronome.
