Band Karate is FUN!!

“The 6th grade students have been practicing hard on their instruments. But what keeps them so interested? Band Karate! Instead of students being required to practice a certain amount of time each night, they are aloud to work at their own pace and ability. When a student passes off a listed tune in their book, they receive a new “belt”. They start off as a white belt and they continue through the colors as they get better! The students get to take their colored belts and show them off to friends and family. It is a great way to bring encouragement and a little bit of fun into the band classroom. Mrs. Haines says that she can already see improvement in their individual playing! So, if you see a band student with colored “belts” around their case handles, tell them to keep it up!!”
