Hello Everyone!

Here is the homework for this week!

Enjoy!

Julian

Recommended daily practice time is 5-10 minutes per day

Songs: 

Good practicing this week! For your homework, replay Firefly with the metronome set from 115-125 BPM where ever you feel comfortable. You will also continue to play Sailing in the Sun. You may set it to the same speed as Firefly 115-125. This week you can play a new song called Ferris Wheel. This song is in 3/4 time and has a lot of slurs written in the music. Be sure to go through the steps to learning a song while you work on it this week.

How parents can help:

Encourage your child to have a daily practice routine and ensure that they are filling out their homework logs correctly. In addition to the online homework posts, I recommend that each student keep and maintain a homework journal where they can fill in how long they practice and what they worked on that week. You can decorate it to make it fun!

Zoe

Recommended daily practice time is 30 minutes per day

Songs: 

Continue to work on all exam music. Focusing on phrasing, dynamics and accuracy of notes and rhythms. Pay extra close attention to climb up on an elephant. We are working in 6/8 time. Try clapping and counting this song a lot this week feeling the strong beats on both 1 and 4. Try accenting them while clapping or even swaying on those beats while you clap.

Technical requirements:

All required scales are as follows: C, G and F Major, A, E and D minor. For each of these scales you must play the scale in one octave with hands separately. You must also play their corresponding triads both broken and solid for each scale. During your practice sessions you may also try out sight reading exercises 2+3 in the next section.

Isabella

Recommended daily practice time is 10-15 minutes per day

Songs: 

This week you will continue to work on the songs from your binder. For homework, you are going to fill in the counting for each song. 1+2+3+4+ under each note. Afterwards you will clap and count each song. Then after you are comfortable, you will count out loud and play each song. Keep a steady beat. Some tricks to help are tapping your foot or using a metronome!

Carmen

Songs: 

Good work with Peter Pan this week. Continue to play Aardvark boogie and count out loud. You will also need to fill in the counting for this song. That way you can clap and count the rhythm as well as count out loud while playing. You may also begin to learn Whirling leaves. If you are comfortable start by filling in the counting and clapping the rhythm. Next you can play hands separately.

Technique:

You have F major scale to practice this week. Be sure to try it in both hands and start each practice session with this scale.

Ahara

Recommended daily practice time is 10 minutes per day

Songs: 

Great job with Monkey! You may continue singing all the songs we work on whenever you like. You may also want to begin singing I need a home for my dinosaur. One of the first things you will need to do is read through the lyrics. If there are any words you do not understand, ask for help! You need to know everything that you sing! You can also try reading the text like a story. This will help you understand the song as a whole. Try reading it to your parents before bed like its a bedtime story! You may also use our recording to practice some of the vocal techniques that we tried out in warm up. We did hops, jumps and some slides with our capes! ZOOOOMMM!!! Try them out during the week!
