Playing Tests are due EVERY MONDAY. Please read the above Rehearsal map for details on what each playing test will be on. We are having a "Mock" Playing test this Friday IN CLASS Below, please download and print out directions on how to submit your playing test. In the end... if you can't get the CHARMS App and you don't have a recording device, I will do the test live. I much prefer not to take time in class for playing test! I would rather grade when I have time to carefully listen and give back meaningful feedback
