“30 years from now, it won’t matter what grades you got.

What will matter is what you learned and how you used it.”


I hope that I made it clear in my welcome letter that my goal for HMS chorus students is to create lifelong lovers of music. My hope is that these grading procedures reflect this goal. Unfortunately, this is a tough thing to place a letter grade on. The grade you receive in this class will reflect your progress as a musician.

The grading system at HMS has been modified. Information concerning the grading system in choir will be passed out separately from the handbook as soon as it is available, in accordance with school and music department guidelines.
