DTS Band ExpectationsStudents taking band lessons are expected to attend a weekly lesson. Their lesson is on the same day at at the same time every week. At the lesson, students will begin learning how to play their instrument. Students are given an assignment to practice at home each week. Practicing at home is crucial to the study of an instrument. Students are encouraged to practice at least 5 days a week at home for 20 minutes. Students will find that practicing at home will make them more successful on their instrument.Recommendations for Instrument Rentals
The method book we use at DTS is Accent on Achievement by John O'Reilly and Mark Williams. Once students complete page 14 in the book, they are officially in the DTS Band!
