    • All Tippit Band students start off in Beginner Band class for one year. After that point, they join one of our competitive band classes (Honors Band or Symphonic Band).
    • If a student has completed a year of Beginner Band at a different school, they may be placed in a competitive band class after discussion with the band staff and a skills assessment.
    • Students are required to practice daily outside of class time. The band hall is open before and after school to allow students to complete their practice time at school.
    • The Tippit Band encourages active parent involvement- we expect that parents attend performances and monitor student practice at home.
