Re: Marching Music Playoff
We have our students do marching pass off's in trio's. They can only play in a trio of three different instruments so we can hear each part. They are given the opportunity to play the music with a recording that has the metronome playing with it. We ask that they mark time and do step outs/choreography when passing music off. We ask our students to come back at another time on their own time to pass off the music again. (We test during our long class in the week). We grade by giving a pass/fail. You either know it or you dont. Hope this helps!
What is your system for your students to play off their show music memorized?
Do you do it individually? Do you do it in pairs?
If they mess up, can they come back that day and try again? Do they have to wait until the next day?
Do you use a metronome when they play?
Do you make them mark time when they play?
Seeing what everyone else does so I can tweek my system and hopefully make it more effective.
