What we did this week:
We learned the G minor harmonic scale two octaves and we learned the G minor arpeggio. We finished the B section of The Clown.
What did we listen to or watch, that you can watch at home?
We listened to musical examples of minor melodic and minor harmonic scales. We sang through the scales and we also sang through the major and minor arpeggios.
What work is to be done this weekend:
Continue with the intonation work for the scales and arpeggio. Please also review all of The Clown.
What are we doing next week?
Next week is review week where we will be going over all of the material for test week. We will be running through this material with the piano.
How much time should your student be practicing each day?
One solid 20 minute practice session focusing on The Clown and the g minor harmonic scale.
How can you help your child?
We recommend that instruments go home on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for the next 2 weeks, and that parents increase focus at this point. If you have not been bringing your instrument home on weekends, this is your home-stretch warning for improving your playing
