Welcome to the Portland East Middle School Band webpage.


What we're working on this week:

8th - technique, rhythm, and tone exercises

7th - rhythm and tone exercises, book review

 6th - trying out instruments

PLEASE remember that students are expected to practice at home approximately 20 minutes per day.

Your focused private practice each week is essential to the success of our band program.  Don't just play straight through your music or just play what you already know.  You will improve much faster if you stop and focus on the parts that are giving you trouble, one small section at a time.

Here are some of the things to prepare in your practice time:

book exercises

scale exercises

long tones

rhythm exercises
