Band Final Exam Information

BAND FINAL EXAM

The band final exam is in two parts. All students will take the final exam with the exception of Seniors who are exempt.

Part 1: Playing – Either perform at Graduation with the band OR play the following six major scales: Bb, Eb, F, Ab, Db, B, E. These are YOUR key, not transposed

Part 2: Written – You will have fifty terms you need to study. These terms are taken from the music we have played this year.

WIND ENSEMBLE ONLY: You will also need to complete a Circle of Fifths from memory with the correct number of sharps and flats next to the note name. I’ve attached a copy of the circle of fifths you need to memorize. It is simply a matter of learning the order clockwise and the sharps and flats are in order.

To study the terms, I’ve made a study guide on Quizlet. Join the class by clicking this link: https://quizlet.com/join/zkxsZ6fq7
