I added a helpful button to the Student Resources page with a link to a PDF of common tempo markings and some of their definitions and associated BPMs. An interesting look for sure, and should be helpful as you fine-tune your Solo & Ensemble projects!
Make a copy for your group of the FINAL EXAM WORKSHEET. Pay attention that there are 5 pages you will be competing!
You will be selecting repertoire and designing a program for two concerts.
I. Repertoire Selection
II. Concert Program
You may model your program after Chippewa Falls High School or you can create a fictional school.
Innapropriate names or content will result in an automatic F and referral to administration.
You will need your chromebook.
Create a new, blank Google doc and share it with both Mr. Renneke and Mr. Hitt.
You will be writing a essay/letter/blog post that is not to exceed one page in length.
Your essay/letter/blog post can use a semi-conversational style, but should not be informal - that means no slang, no "text speak", no memes.
Your essay/letter/blog post should share your thoughts and reflections on the following questions. Always consider the rubric: TONE, INTONATION, ACCURACY, TECHNIQUE, EXPRESSION, BALANCE/SET-UP.
On the bottom of your letter/essay/blog post you will be nominating students for the elected Leadership Team. Review the descriptions of the different positions.
Nominate the following:
In every young musicians life there will come a point where the instrument they began on will no longer be satisfactory. I don't mean "satisfactory" in the sense that a beginner-level instrument will one day run out of joy to provide, but rather that a student's growth as a musician will be inhibited by the level and quality of the instrument they are using.

Mr. Renneke will be running a sample AP Music Theory lesson in the music tech lab on Wednesday and Friday during Lunch A for interested students. AP Music Theory is currently offered to seniors, but a great option for underclassmen is to first enroll in Popular Songwriting.
This blog is intended to serve as a collection of announcements and information for current students and their families.
