What we did this week:
We reviewed the Air with the bowing patterns. We learned the two octave C minor harmonic scale two octaves and the C minor arpeggio. We worked on shifting and third position.
What did we listen to or watch, that you can watch at home?
We sang through the two scales minor melodic and minor harmonic. We worked on shifting and intonation as a result we sang through intervals as well.
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?
A solid 45 minute or 60 minute session focusing on all material learned so far is strongly encouraged.
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.
