We alternate practicing our music piece then have free time to play ping-pong, sing karaoke, or play in the open gym, eat pizza and snacks and back to practicing our piece. We begin playing with our complete band or orchestra class, then later in the evening, we practice with our individual instrument sections. At the end of the night, we come back together with our complete class and hear how much we improve."
