Daily Class procedures

Commitment to the drumline
Commitment to the Drumline

  • This class is designed as a performance class. If you choose to participate in the winter drumline season, you MUST commit! This means all practices, rehearsals, performances! Since we are competing against other middle schools and representing Nobel, I expect the same commitment to excellence as in your academic classes. These are all part of your grade. Saturdays rehearsals and performances are mandatory.


Grading Scale: 100% to 90% = A

89% to 80 % = B

79% to 70% = C

69% to 60% = D

59% and below is a FAIL

Grade points: Performance Tests = 100 points

Written Tests = 100 points

Performing Concerts = 500 points each date TBA

Daily Participation = 10 points

Homework (Practice logs) = 20 points per week


Tests and make ups

In addition to written tests, there will be playing tests.

During the playing test the student will be graded on:

Note accuracy

Rhythmic accuracy

Playing posture

Instrument position

If a test is missed, it can be made up within one week of the students' return to class. This make up must be done on the student's own time (before school, during nutrition or lunch, or after school) not during a passing period or at the beginning or end of class. If the student is not satisfied with a grade, the test can be retaken as many times as necessary within one week to raise that grade to a B. An "A" may only be achieved on the initial attempt at the test.

Tests and make-ups

Work habits cooperation grade

The work habits grade includes:

Posture, (sitting up straight, feet flat on the floor!)

Punctuality, (getting to class on time)

Promptness in preparation for rehearsal (getting stand, chair and instrument out in an orderly and prompt fashion).

The cooperation grade includes:

The cooperation grade is based on a point system.

I will award the students 10 points a day.

If the student has good work habits and contributes to the progress of the rehearsal by not talking, participating and listening to instruction, then the student will keep the 50 points a week.

However, if the student breaks any of the classroom rules a point will be deducted for every offense cited.

Points will be tallied up after each grading period and E's, S's and U's will be given out accordingly.

Points cannot be made up! If a student is disciplined for disrupting a rehearsal more than once in a week, he or she will receive a "U" cooperation for the entire grading period.
