Student ExpectationsThis course is designed for students with elevated performance, communication and/or cognitive skills. Due to the independent nature of this course, students who elect to pursue honors credit should be self-motivated and responsible. All assignments will be completed independently with the time-line provided by the instructor.Admissions Criteria

I would like to enroll in the advanced music program at Allen High School. I understand that this course will not only include regularly scheduled activities (band, orchestra/choir) but will also include additional assignments as specified in the Advanced Music requirements. I am aware that my grade will reflect not only the content and completion of the assignments but also the timely manner in which they are presented. Furthermore, I understand that failure to complete advanced music requirements could result in failure of the course. This is a yearlong course.
