5th Grade Band Information

This page contains information on what 5th grade students should be practicing as well as links to all of the written work for 5th grade band. The purpose in providing these links is for students to access assignments in case they are absent, lose their original copy, or need to redo an assignment. Note that assignments are listed in the order they have been assigned. Also note that most written assignments are INSTRUMENT SPECIFIC- this means that after you click on the link for the assignment you are looking for, you need to scroll through the PDF file to find the page that is for your instrument! Please contact Mr. Cosby or Mr. Myre with any questions about the written assignments for 5th grade band.
