assumed that students are taking lessons to improve their
performance abilities on the trumpet; this requires regular,
daily practice. Students who are not willing to dedicate
themselves to regular practice should not be registered for
lessons. Scholarship students enrolled in ½ hour lessons
should practice at least 1 hour per day in addition to any
ensemble rehearsals; students registered for hour lessons
should practice a minimum of two hours per day in addition
to ensemble rehearsals; music education majors should
practice at least two hours per day; performance majors should
practice 2-4 hours per day. Each lesson will be graded on
the following scale:
A = Student has clearly practiced, performance
B = The student has met some of the weeks goals,
performance shows some improvement.
C = The student has met few or none of the week’s
shows little or no improvement.
F = Not present.
semester grade will be the average of the lesson grade and
the jury grade weighted 66% lesson grades and 34% Jury
grade. A student not meeting the memorization requirement
will lose one letter grade.
