Beginner Orchestra Ribbon Chart

2017-2018

 

CTMS Beginner Orchestra Ribbon Chart
Beginner students will do pass-offs on Fridays in class and will count as a weekly summative grade. You will be able to progress through these ribbons at your own pace. You can also come in the mornings before school to pass-off extra numbers and get ahead! The music must be perfect in order to move to the next one! Perfect means all notes correct and in tune, dynamics are observed, perfect position and posture, perfect bow hold, correct rhythms, and straight bows.
