Andrew G. Schmidt Middle School
8th Grade Band
Under the direction of Mr. Andrew David Perkins. Here is a link to the AGS Middle School Grading Policies for Band.
We will be using Google Classroom for all playing tests. The classroom code for our 8th grade Google Classroom is: 1imep6
Band members will need a 1" three-ring binder with pockets, and 25 clear window pages, matte or satin (non-glare) finish is best. The required method books for AGS 8th Grade Band members are the "Standard of Excellence" Book 2 (Blue) & Book 3 (Green), which can be purchased through Amazon or Marshall Music (Make sure you order the correct instrument book). Band Students who attended AGS Middle School in 6th & 7th grades should already have the Blue Book! These required texts will be important for playing tests, individual practice and ensemble use in class.
