Assignments for Oct 23

Hey everyone!

Here is this weeks homework!

Have a good week :)

Simone

Recommended minutes to practice: 15 Minutes per day

Songs: Practice counting out loud while playing Merrily we roll along, Men from mars. This will help you keep a steady beat while you play. Remember the steps to learning a song if you are having trouble. They are written in your book. For Ode to Joy make sure you count with the letters to help you find the correct ones on the piano. There is also Sea story, Hey Mr. Half note and Alouette. Remember to also use a metronome once you are comfortable with the song. Stick to 80-90 bpm.

How parents can support practice: Encouraging your child to practice regularly and helping them develop a routine is the best way to be supportive. Additionally, check their homework log for accuracy. 

Zoe

Recommended minutes to practice: 15-20 minutes per day

Songs: This week continue working on Runaway rabbit working on the 4th and 5th line. Play these hands apart then hands together until it is comfortable. Once it is comfortable to play those two lines, move on and play the entire song. For Lightly row, Rusty old bike and Peter Peter, remember we are focusing on the 3 different ways of making sound on the piano. Legato should be played smoothly holding the note down until you play the next one, Detached should sound separate from the notes after and Staccato should sound really short, like the piano is HOT! Also remember all of the dynamics

Kate

Recommended minutes to practiceWhenever you can fit some time in :)

This week Kate continue to think about the idea of speaking while singing. Giving more energy to the lips to allow for more resonance and buoyancy in your sound. Continue to work through the process of how you achieve high notes and long phrases. Think of a soft nose, and soft eyes. Continue with Automne and try memorizing the text. I would also like you to translate the text and write your translation under the french text. We can work on interpretation next week. We will also start with Claire de lune, so if it’s possible bring a translation of that as well.

 

Sara

Recommended minutes to practice: 15-20 minutes per day

Songs: Mozart’s 5 names and the two songs that follow is what you will be working on this week. Remember the steps to learning a song. Go through each step carefully and be sure that the counting is filled in for the new songs. Also work on l’il Liza Jane sight reading day 4 and 5. Count out loud while you play this week.

Scales: Work on G major and c major scale this week. Practice with the metronome set at 100 bpm. Remember to keep your hands lighter and try out the eraser trick.

Songs: Puff the magic dragon and marines Hymn, go through the practice schedule we talked about to help make you comfortable playing each song.

Voice: Can’t help falling in love add some ornament notes at the end of this song. Also go back and make sure that you are spitting out all of your consonants and singing on your vowels.
