Junior High Band
Study Guides

9th-Grade Study Guide 2*

* The second quarter 9th-grade written test was 100 musical terms and symbols. I used the list of terms at the back of the method books we were using as study guides. For copyright reasons the lists are not included here.

Video Disclaimer

The attached videos are not perfect examples of how each tune should be played. They are recordings of junior high students, some of whom have had their instruments for only a few months. Also, they are not professional recordings. They were taken by band parents using home equipment and naturally focusing on their own children.

I include them for two reasons: (1) To give you an idea of what the arrangements are like, and (2) To illustrate the kind of performance you can expect from your junior high students.
