Welcome to Mrs. Leitzel's Home Page
would like to review a few responsibilities regarding participation in
the instrumental program at both Summitview and Fairview.
Students need to have required materials with them for both lesson and
full-band. This includes lesson book, band music, pencil and parent
signature on practice log.
2. Students are required to attend
lessons during the school day. If there is an activity taking place
within the regular classroom that does not allow them to attend students
need to let me know. Otherwise they are recorded as skipping lesson
3. Students are required to practice a minimum of 15
minutes each night, which totals 90 minutes, to receive a practice grade
of "A" for each lesson. If students have two lessons during the week
then a requirement of 60 minutes for the second lesson equals an "A." A
break-down of the practice grade for each lesson is found below.
Regular Week (6 practice days of 90 minutes) Short Week (4 practice days of 60 minutes)
A+= 91 or more minutes A+= 61 or more minutes
A= 75-90 minutes A= 45-60 minutes
B= 60-74 minutes B= 30-44 minutes
C= 45-59 minutes C= 21-29 minutes
D= 30-44 minutes D= 15-20 minutes
F= 0-29 minutes F= 0-14 minutes
your child to practice. It is only with continued perseverance that
success is obtained. Thank you for your continued support of the music
program at your child's school.
