Re: 6th Grade Solo
We have a Solo Recital on the Thursday before Spring Break. All beginners are required to perform. We hire judges to come in and judge our students. Parents are invited to come watch and/or record their child. We read the critique sheets during class the next day and hand out their medals (Gold, Silver or Bronze). It gives us something to keep the students motivated before the break. Kind of like the Christmas Concert before the fall semester ends and the Spring Concert before the school year ends. We use to do them at the end of the year but we are too busy trying to get our concert music ready then. Our administrators like the fact that we do not have the students miss more school as we do it during their class times. We use the KJOS Festival Solos Book 1. This has worked really well for us.
