It is expected that students in the Liberty High School Band should practice a minimum of 200 minutes per week and must be logged and turned in via the LHS Practice Log every Monday. It is the student's responsibility to earn their practice time by practicing at home, during lunch, or after school, and must be signed by a parent or guardian, or Mr. Whaley. Playing in your ensemble class does not count towards your required practice time, however, performing in an outside of school ensemble on your instrument does such as the Las Vegas Youth Orchestra, the Desert Winds, CSN concert band, etc... For guidance, see the "How to Practice" portion of the LHS practice log.
