6th Grade Music Rotation Syllabus and Rules

-->





6th Grade Music
Rotation Class
 Mr. Mitchell. Ms. Williams

We are very excited to begin our musical exploration with our 6th grade classes!  We will begin by learning to play recorders using the Recorder Karate and Recorder Apprentice programs.  In this portion of the class, students will learn how to read written music notation and apply it to performance on instruments.  After our exploration on recorders, we will take the same music reading skills and apply them to the ukulele.  In 6 weeks, students will be able to play a variety of songs on recorder and ukulele.  We hope to have our keyboard lab ready for the last 3 weeks of the quarter, so that students will be able to extend their abilities and be able to play a song with 2 hands independently on keyboards.  The goal of our course is to give students an opportunity to learn to read music and to play a variety of instruments. 

All instruments will be available for students to use at school.  Students will be assigned an instrument to use during class time, as well as all materials needed to participate in the course.  As in other classes, students should be prepared with their own pencils, agenda, and a notebook or folder to store their materials.  Students will receive group instruction, and coaching and will have an opportunity to work individually, and in small and large groups. 

This class is part of the rotation system.  We may have various levels of skill in each class, beginning with students with no music training or experience to those who read music and play at an advanced level.


Students must be careful with the equipment and treat it with utmost respect. The rules outlined in the 6th grade Rotation Parent contract will be strictly enforced, and the consequences will be serious.

Grading:

Grades in Rotation are determined by the student’s participation, cooperation and increase of musical knowledge and skill.  

Grades are earned as follows:

Behavior, Attitude, Participation, Citizenship                            50%
Quizzes and Playing Tests or a Written report effort               50%


Rotation classes are counted equal to other classes in grade point averages.


Classroom procedure:

I will be using Class Dojo as a classroom management aid in this year’s Music Rotation classes.  You will receive an invitation to sign up for Class Dojo so that parents can monitor their child’s behavior in the class, and students can modify their avatars if they choose.   In the Class Dojo system, students are awarded positive points for good behavior, and negative points for inappropriate behaviors.   When a student achieves a score of -3 at the end of any day, they will receive a detention.  A weekly percentage of score of 70% or less will result in a detention.  Please see the Rotation Rules sheet for more information. 

Students are expected to:
      enter the room quietly
      be able to work individually without disturbing others
      be able to work in a group without disturbing others
      maintain a positive attitude
      treat all of the equipment with the utmost respect
      bring all of their materials to class each time we meet
      follow all school rules


Thanks, in advance, for your help and support with your child.  I’m really happy to have them as students. 




Rules
-->
Music Rotation Rules

Students at Windsor Middle School are asked to be Respectful, Responsible, and Safe.  The MIE Lab Rules reflect that philosophy.

RESPECTFUL:
     Enter and Exit the room quietly.
     Respect all of the equipment in the room.
     Do nothing that will interfere with the learning that is taking place.

RESPONSIBLE:
     Be on time every day.
     Bring a positive attitude and excellent behavior to class every day. 
     Bring all materials every day.

SAFE
     Food, drinks or gum are NEVER ALLOWED!!!
     Stay in your seat at all times unless otherwise directed. 
     Treat all of the musical instruments with respect.
     ALL OTHER SCHOOL RULES APPLY IN THIS CLASSROOM!

We will be using the “Class Dojo” system in this course.  Your score on Class Dojo will determine your score for the “behavior” portion of your grade.  A score of -3 in any day will result in a Detention.  A weekly score of less than 70% will result in a detention, as well.  Parents are invited and encouraged to sign up for “Class Dojo”.  Information is attached.

Consequences for severe misbehavior or for tampering with guitars, keyboards, or ukuleles will result in immediate removal from classroom and a referral to the office.  In the past, parents have been billed for repairs required by a student’s willful vandalism of school equipment. 





Please turn paper over to sign.  Thanks!


We have read and understand the Music Rotation classroom procedures.

Happy Fall!

Dear WMS Band family -- I hope that this message finds you and yours safe and healthy and starting to recover from the devastating fires that we experienced.  My heart goes out to all those who suffered during this horrible time.  We all know many people who have been affected by this tragedy.  We all have done our best to help and support those in need and will continue to do so.  If there is anything I can do to help anyone personally, please let me know.  Our WMS Band instrument collection is fine, but the Music For Schools Instrument Lending Library at the Luther Burbank Center lost hundreds of instruments in the fire.  I know that they will be accepting donations of instruments when they reopen. 

As you now know, The Analy Fall Festival in which our Honor Bands were scheduled to play on October 27th was cancelled.  We were looking forward to this prestigious event as an opportunity to show off the outstanding work that our groups have been doing this year.  If they are able to come up with another day in the Spring and we are able to attend, we will gladly do so.

I've been very gratified for the large numbers of students who have been playing with our Jazz Band on Mondays and Fridays during Flex Time.  Participants receive academic points to apply to their grade in their other band class.  We are very excited that we will be able to have a short 2 song performance before the WUSD school board meeting on Tuesday November 7th from 5:30 - 6:15

Thank you very much for encouraging your child to play music in our bands and thank you for reminding them that studying music is on of the best things they can do for their brains.  Research continues to show that playing a musical instrument opens up pathways and connects different sections of the brain in a way that no other subject or activity does.  A music class should be there 6th class, and an elective should be their 7th class. Thank you for supporting music at Windsor Middle School.

Sonoma Jump Start a Huge Success!!

The Sonoma Jump Start at the Cazadero Performing Arts Camp was a huge success for students in the Windsor Unified School District! This was the 14th year that Windsor students have participated in this amazing weekend event.  22 WMS Honor Band students and 8 WHS Symphonic Band members joined students from other Sonoma county middle and high schools to spend time making music, making new friends, enjoying excellent camp food, sleeping under the stars, singing around a campfire and rehearsing for a special concert on Sunday afternoon.  Many thanks to our parent chaperones, Steven, James and Tara for joining us at CAZ PAC.  We are especially grateful to Emily Brockman from Cazadero.org for arranging bus transportation for the students from WUSD and Healdsburg, and providing scholarships that allowed WMS students to attend.  Thanks, also, to Heidi for chaperoning the bus ride for us!  We are so fortunate to live so close to a world class performing arts camp, and to have a thriving community of music and arts in our public schools.

Thank you to all Windsor parents for advocating for the performing arts in Windsor schools.  Your voice is among the most important in the ongoing conversation about high quality VAPA in our public schools!

We're Going to Have a Great Year

Hello Parents and Students -- Welcome back to another year of Band at Windsor Middle School.  It has been so great seeing our old friends and meeting our new ones!  I am really looking forward to this year and I know that we are going to have one of the best years ever for the Bands at WMS!  Your child should have already received the "Band Room Rules" sheet and asked you to sign it.  They were also given a sheet with information about Class Dojo.  Many thanks to those of you who are willing to follow your children on Class Dojo - it really helps to manage their behavior here at school.  I've told them that they want you to follow them so that they can show you how well they are doing in class!  Thank you very much for supporting music at Windsor Middle School.  As always, feel free to write or call with questions, comments or concerns.  -- Steve Mitchell

WMS Honor Band Syllabus

-->
Dear Students and Parents -- Welcome to another tremendous year for the Windsor Middle School Bands and thank you for being part of our musical community!  I am looking forward to once again achieving our primary goal:   to have as much fun as possible, and to reap the many benefits of music education by creating outstanding performing ensembles!  This document should provide all of the information that you will need to have a rewarding and fantastic year!
What is Honor Band?
Honor is defined as “high respect, as that shown for special merit; esteem.”  We are happy that WMS can offer two sections of “Honor Band” this year.  The Honor Band is a specially selected group of 2nd and 3d year players.  Each group was carefully chosen to blend ability and instrumentation.  A great deal of effort was put into this process which will allow students to play in high quality groups while still taking advantage of the many other outstanding programs and course offerings at our school.  It is an honor for me to have you as students.  I know that you will honor me with your outstanding attitude, behavior and effort!
Attitude
Attitude is the most important thing in life, and certainly the most important thing in our bands.   Attitudes are contagious:  bad attitudes tend to spread to others and can ruin a group and the experience for every member.  Similarly, good attitudes can sweep through a group creating a feeling of connectedness and loyalty that can make good groups great.  As Charles Swindoll said, “The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a company...a church (a band)... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude...I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you...we are in charge of our attitudes.”  Your attitude and your behavior account for 1/2 of your grade in this course.  Please be here because you want to be here and participate in all of the fun things that we will do this year.  Students who develop an unacceptable attitudes or behaviors will be removed.                                                          
Community
Band classes are different from other classes.  In Band, we learn by working together to create something that none of us could create on our own.  Every person in the group affects every other person to a much greater extent than in other types of classes.  Each person’s behavior and performance directly influences both the quality of the music that we produce together, and the amount that we can learn.  Because we perform in public and represent Windsor Middle School, the quality of our work reflects the quality of our WMS community.  Each person in the group has a responsibility to every other person, and to the school at large,  to do their best, in class and in performance.   It is critical that we work together to create the best possible experience for ourselves, and an outstanding impression on the community.  You are a member of our team, and every other member of the team is relying on you to be there and to do your best every time we are together.
Behavior
Behavior in instrumental music classes presents a unique challenge for both students and teachers.  Think of it this way: the goal of our class is to create sound - beautiful, artistic sound hopefully.  We have large classes full of students who have instruments that can make a great deal of noise.  Because our classes are “electives”, students are more likely to be in groups with their friends.   (This is good, because we are creating a community, as noted above.)  The challenge is to enjoy the company of our friends and to create an environment that allows everyone to learn.  It is imperative that students have outstanding behavior in the classroom and in public performances. Please see the “Rules” sheet for specific rules and consequences. Parents can help by supporting our efforts to maintain high standards for behavior and performance.
Calendar
Here are the important dates for the 2017/2018 School Year

Sonoma Jump Start   9/29– 10/1 2017

Analy Fall Festival    10/27 or 10/28 2017

Winter Concert      12/14/2017

Windsor at Weill Hall   3/15/18



Discovery Kingdom    5/12/18

Spring Concert        5/24/18


It is my hope that with this advance notice you will be able to keep these dates in mind as you plan your other activities.  The Winter and Spring Concerts and the Fall Festival are curricular events and are considered part of the student’s grade.  Unexcused absences to the Concerts including Windsor @ Weill will cause a student’s final grade to be reduced by one letter grade for that term.  Failure to attend the Fall Festival will result in a 250 pt. fine.  Bonus points will be awarded for attendance at our important co-curricular events that take place outside of school hours.  It is important to remember that our ensembles are communities in which every person contributes to the work that we produce together.
Performance Attire
We ask that students wear black long pants, or skirt a white long sleeve button down shirt or blouse that will be tucked in (for guys), and black shoes.
Grading
Fifty percent of a student’s grade is based on behavior, attitude and participation in class.  These will be listed as “Behavior” points.  Fifty percent of their grade is based on work they do outside of class, or on demonstrated service to the group.   These points will be listed as “Academic” points.   Options for earning “Academic” points include documented practice time, written reports on composers and performers, written music theory assignments, musical or concert reviews, directed composition projects, music careers research projects,  solo and small ensemble performance projects, extra or cocurricular performance or fundraising opportunities.  There are points available for playing in extra curricular ensembes, serving as a Band Officer or other service to the “musical community”.  There are 900 points per term available for behavior and participation in class and 900 “Academic” points available for work that is done outside of class, or for extra service to the group.  The final grade is calculated as an average of the two scores described above.  Students who earn less than 540 points in the “Academic” category, can still get a “C” if they have outstanding classroom behavior and participation.  Students who earn more than 900 points in the “Academic” category will not be able to subsidize poor scores in the “behavior and participation” category.  Student scores are posted by “code name” in the room, so students will know how they are doing at all times.  The Academic portion of the course is “self-directed” in the sense that students choose which assignments they would like to do and when they would like to turn them in.  This gives students the freedom
to plan their homework around their individual schedules, but adds the responsibility of making sure that they have the points that they need for the grade that they want to earn by the time the term ends.  The grading rubric is as follows:



Grading for Windsor Middle School Bands
 
Behavior Points available per quarter:   900
Behavior points available per day:        20
Academic points available per quarter: 900
Your grade will be based on the “Average” of your “Behavior” and your “Academic Points”
       810 - 900             = A          
       720 - 809             = B
       630 - 719             = C
       540 - 629             = D
       below 540 - does not earn a passing grade
Ways to earn points:
  • Practice – 1 hour – 100 points. 
  • Playing tests – 50 – 100 points depending on difficulty.
  • Research papers on Composers or Performers – 50 – 250 points depending on quality
  • Performance Review – 50 – 250 points depending on quality
  • Composition projects – 50 – 250 points depending on quality
  • Music Theory worksheets - 50 points per sheet (4 available per term)
  • Music Careers research projects -50 – 250 points depending on quality
  • Band Officer – 500 points (President, Librarian, Treasurer, Sound Tech)
  • JB or EC ensembles – 50 points per session – 250 pts. per performance
  • Fill an Instrument vacancy (low brass/low winds) – 500 – 750 points
  • Numerous other incentives that make it easy for you to get the "A" such as "signing bonuses", "character bonuses", bonus questions offered. 
If you have less than “540 points” in the “Academic” Category on the last day when the grading period is over, 539 points is added to your “Academic” score.  This will bring your average up.  If you have more than “900 points” in the “Academic” Category, your “average” is calculated based on 900 points and not your actual total.  This keeps well behaved students who have not done enough work outside of class from failing, and poorly behaved students who get a large number of “Academic” points from automatically earning a good grade.
Instruments
Windsor Middle School has been fortunate to be able to loan instruments to students over the last few years.  As our program grows, though, it has become increasingly difficult to provide instruments for Honor Band students while continuing to supply our Beginning groups with adequate numbers of instruments to play.  It is sometimes possible to buy used instruments at very reasonable rates.  I frequently buy used instruments off of Craigslist to add to the WMS instrument inventory.  In addition, there are reputable dealers who offer good quality refurbished instruments at reasonable rates.  Please be careful about buying poor quality new instruments that are often available at Costco, Sears or online.  If the price seems to good to be true, then the instrument is probably not worth the money you are going to pay for it.  (These cheap instruments have come to be called “Instrument Shaped Objects” by music teachers.  I often ask the repair techs at Stanroy for advice about instrument quality because there are so many instruments out there with so many different names.)  If you have any interest in buying a new or used instrument for your child to use, please let me know.  I can give you more information and suggestions about how to go about it.  Also, if you or anyone you know has an instrument they would like to donate to our program, we are always happy to give generous tax deductible donation letters.

Thanks again for encouraging your child to play music and thank you for supporting music at Windsor Middle School!  As always, you can reach me at 837-7737 ext 8134 or by mail:  smitchell@wusd.org


Thank you very much for being part of the Windsor Middle School Honor Band!  By participating in our group your are demonstrating that you are a person of character and depth who cares about your education and your future.  Every year, the WMS performing groups draw the finest individuals in the school and this year is no exception.  Thank you.

Dear Students and Parents -- Thank you for being part of the Windsor Middle School Musical Community.  Music enriches our lives in many ways, and the work that we do together enriches the overall climate and culture of Windsor Middle School.  Consequently, we have a responsibility to our selves and to our school to live up to our potential and to create the best bands that we possibly can!  I know that the students in this year’s bands are capable of great things.   I truly believe that we can create some of the best music ever produced at Windsor Middle School, and I look forward to working together, having fun, learning many things and taking advantage of your abundant talent.  This document should provide all of the information that you will need to have a rewarding and fantastic year!
Attitude
Attitude is the most important thing in life, and certainly the most important thing in our bands.   Attitudes are contagious:  bad attitudes tend to spread to others and can ruin a group and the experience for every member.  Similarly, good attitudes can sweep through a group creating a feeling of connectedness and loyalty that can make good groups great.  As Charles Swindoll said, “The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.

Students who develop an unacceptable pattern of behavior that affects other members of the group will be removed.
Calendar
Here are a list of the dates that we have on the calendar for the 2017/2018 school year:
Winter Concert      12/14/17
Windsor Day Parade  5/5/18
Spring Concert      5/24/18

It is my hope that with this advance notice you will be able to keep these dates in mind as you plan your other activities.  The Winter and Spring Concerts are considered part of the student’s grade.  Unexcused absences to the Concerts will cause a student’s final grade to be reduced by one letter grade.  Failure to attend the Windsor Parade will result in a 250 pt. fine, but extra credit work will be available for any student who is uanable to attend.

We ask that students wear black long pants, or skirts a white shirt or blouse (tucked in for boys), and black shoes.

Daily points available per day:                20
Academic points available per quarter:         900
Your grade will be based on the “Average” of your “Behavior” and Your “Academic” points. 

810 - 900                   = A          
720 - 809                   = B
630 - 719                   = C
540 - 629                   = D
below 540 ---- does not earn a passing grade

Ways to earn points:
  • Practice – 1 hour – 100 points, Flex time practice included!
  • Playing tests – 50 – 100 points depending on difficulty.
  • Research papers on Composers or Performers – 100 – 250 points depending on quality
  • Performance Review – 50 – 250 points depending on quality
  • Composition projects – 50 – 250 points depending on quality
  • Music Theory worksheets - 50 points per sheet (4 available per term)
  • Music Careers research projects - 50 – 250 points depending on quality
  • Band Officer – 500 points (President, Librarian, Treasurer, Sound Tech)
  • Jazz Band or EC ensembles – 50 points per session – 250 pts. per performance
  • Fill an Instrument vacancy (low brass/low winds) – 500 – 750 points
      (The points awarded for filling instrument vacancies will be negotiable.
      We clearly have a need for some instruments more than others.)

If you have less than “540 points” in the “Academic” Category on the last day when the grading period is over, 539 points is added to your “Academic” score.  This will bring your average up.  If you have more than “900 points” in the “Academic” Category, your “average” is calculated based on 900 points and not your actual total.  This keeps well behaved students who have not done enough work outside of class from failing, and poorly behaved students who get a large number of “Academic” points from automatically earning a good grade.
Instrument Selection
It is very important that beginning students select the correct instrument when they are starting out.   A student is much more likely to be successful and reap the benefits of studying music, if they choose an instrument that they are well suited for.  Each person’s body and face is different and most people will find that they have an easier time with some instruments than with others.  Many students already have an idea of  what instrument they would like to play, or the student’s family has an instrument that they can use.  Please keep an open mind about instrument selection.  Our goal is to have everyone be successful in their efforts to play an instrument.   The students in the Beginning classes will soon be trying out the different instruments mouthpieces to see which instruments will suit them.  A letter will be coming home soon letting you know how your child did on the instrument tryouts.
WMS Instruments 
We are fortunate to have a limited number of schools instruments that we will be able to loan to students for the year.  Preference for WMS instruments will be given to families that have a financial need to borrow one from the school. All other WMS instruments will be distributed by lottery.  “Music for Schools” also has instruments to loan to those families that are unable to rent an instrument.  Once again, preference is given to those families with a financial need.   I have applications available for those interested in pursuing this option.  Rental instruments are available from several shops in the area including Stanroy Music Center and Santa Rosa Music Center in Santa Rosa.  Donations to our instrument repair are welcome.  You can make checks payable to WMS Boosters.  
Percussion
Students who wish to play percussion instruments will be able to apply and audition for one of our percussion positions after our Winter Concert.  Our percussionists must be among the finest musicians in our group.  Not only do they need outstanding music reading and rhythm skills, they need to  be proficient in reading both treble and bass clefs.  They also must have outstanding classroom behavior, a strong work ethic and outstanding musicianship.  For these reasons, we wait until half way through the year to determine which students will be selected to play percussion.  A student who really wants to play percussion will have to demonstrate that they can play all of the material that we are playing on their first instrument.  Parents who would like to help their child become a percussionist can help by making sure their child is successful on their first instrument. 
Practice
 Beginning students will have the best success if they adhere to a regular practice schedule to develop the skills that are taught in class.   1 hour of practice time per week will give a student the 900 points required for an “A” in the “homework” portion of our grading system.  Students are always welcome to practice more than that, and they may need to at the beginning.  Students who do not practice outside of class will have a much harder time being successful in class and will be much more likely to want to quit.  10 - 20 minutes of practice 5 days a week will really help a student to pick up the skills that they need to be successful.  Parents can help by providing a quiet space and time for students to practice.  Listening to your child and providing a few words of encouragement can really help!

Thanks again for encouraging your child to play music and thank you for supporting music at Windsor Middle School!  As always, you can reach me at 837-7737 ext 8134.  It is often easiest for me to communicate via e-mail:  smitchell@wusd.org.  If you prefer to communciate via e-mail please send me a message so that I have your address in my address book.  Thank you !!
