Homework Policy


Students are expected to practice for at least 30 minutes each day.

Rehearsal time is for putting the parts together to build the piece as a whole under the instruction of the head conductor. Students must refine the technique with their private lesson teacher and be ready to play the part as an ensemble on the rehearsal day.

Teachers will observe the student's performance on the rehearsal day and assign video recording homework to students who need extra attention. These selected students must submit the video recording by the due date. After viewing the video, teachers will comment on the performance and suggest what to work on. Students are required to make an effort to improve the commented suggestions and be ready to apply these changes at the next rehearsal.

We only have 45 min of rehearsal time a week. The rehearsal time is to refine the performance as a group, not individual practice. Personal practice and refinement should be done before the rehearsal. Failure to show effort and dedication to improving will result in taking a break from the orchestra and will have to re-audition when ready to work as a group.

Our limited short rehearsal time requires focused dedication from each member.
