7th Grade Playing Tests

7th Grade,

Make sure you can get into the Charms system using the following login, and let Mrs. Aikey know if you can't get into the system.

School Code: DurhamOrch

Id/Password: Your lunch code/Student ID

The Charms system will then prompt you to make a new password. You do not have to do this if you don't want to, though you definitely can if you would like to. On the right hand side of the app, you will see a menu dropdown. Tap on it to see the menu. Tap "Recording Studio." Then, click the second tab on the bottom that looks like a sheet of paper; this is the Assignments tab. You can then choose which playing test you want to record. It's that easy! You can choose to re-record as well if you don't like what you hear back. Once you submit the playing test though, it is locked and you cannot go back, so make sure your recording is the way you want it before you submit it. Here is what you are expected to play:


Zydeco Two Step Test (Due 3/22):

Violins- Measures 9-16
Violas- Measures 18-25 (no repeat)
Cellos and Basses- Measures 34-49

Cellos and Basses who do not have their own instrument or students who do not have a smartphone or tablet can record their playing tests before school on any morning before school (8:15) OR they can record their playing test during class this week.


Let Mrs. Aikey know if you have any issues or questions!
