TMIS Band Week 10

Posted by Dean Surface on October 14, 2019 in TMIS with No Comments


Hello Mustang Band,

This week is the 1st week of the 2nd quarter (9weeks) . The first set of google classroom assignments is posted for the week. The pass offs are done easily via the google classroom app on a smart phone or tablet. Students need to read all the directions for each pass off, some require a metronome some do not.

Students should be practicing daily for the weekly pass offs to be successful. Some assignments might require one or more attempts for success. If it does not sound right to you, it probably isn’t 🙂

Get your band swag here, limited time only, MOVE FAST! https://outabounds-apparel.myshopify.com/?fbclid=IwAR1-Tm1qvrpNGRywRCCmv4DBRB5YmBKWKoh2yPaJ2qvKs75EoHHTrr1tnyU

Happy Music Making!!!

TMIS Week 9

Posted by Dean Surface on October 6, 2019 in TMIS with No Comments


Hello Mustang Band Families,

All grades have been entered for the 9 weeks. Please check HAC today! Some students have not turned in their google classroom assignments and have a zero in the grade book. This is the last week of the nine weeks and the grades go on the report card this week. I will not be adding a google classroom assignment this week to allow students to get caught up! I will update grades throughout the week as google classroom assignments are completed.

The easiest and most effective way to do the google classroom assignments is to download the google app to a phone. Students log in with their chrome book passwords and then click our class. They will choose an assignment and then click add attachment. Select "camera" and record. Then hit mark as done! That Simple! I have attached a video example of what to do!

Your children are amazing, hilarious, and hard working! Thank you for allowing me to get to work with them!

TMIS Week 8

Posted by Dean Surface on September 29, 2019 in TMIS with No Comments


Hello Families,

Reminder that all students have google classroom assignments that are due tonight! I have just pushed out the two playing lines for next week. Your children are doing GREAT and I feel lucky to get to work with them!

Music is a cumulative skill, and it gets more difficult as we add more layers of complexity. For this reason, it is SO important for students to be practicing at home what we are working on in class. Please encourage them to carve out a 10-15 minute block each day for practice. Invite your child to demonstrate what they have learned so far – it is incredible how much they have grown since just August.

Thank you
Dean Surface

TMIS Week 6

Posted by Dean Surface on September 15, 2019 in TMIS with No Comments


This is a copy of your group email.

Good afternoon TMIS Band families,

We are so excited about the amazing progress of the 2019-20 Mustang Band! Your children have learned so much in such a short amount of time. This week, we are continuing our work learning to read and identify notes on the staff, then playing them on the instrument.

Students should be practicing between 10-15 minutes a night. Please encourage your child to practice if they are not doing so. If they do not know what to practice, ask them to try to replicate at home what they did in band class that day.

Thank you,
TMIS Band Staff
