Hello Everyone!

Here is the homework for this week!

Enjoy!

Julian

Recommended daily practice time is 5-10 minutes per day

Songs: 

We are almost at the end of our lesson book! Next week we can try to look at music in the Level 1 faber adventures book. In the meantime, you can continue to practice ‘Let’s play’ the very last song in the book, one more week. You may also play any of your favourites from the book just for fun!

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 20-25 minutes per day

Songs: 

We have begun exam prep! We will have lots of time to decide whether we go through with the exam but for now it is best to prepare as best we can. We have selected Burlesque in G Major, Angelfish, Swirling leaves. There is also a new song on the list and that is Celebration from the etudes book. You may also begin the learning process for this song.

Technical requirements:

For the exam there are 6 scales required. C, G and F major scale. There is also the relative minor scales A, E and D minor scales. You can play through each of these during the week.

Renaud

Recommended daily practice time is 10-15 minutes per day

Songs: 

This week we will continue to work on Grandmother. For this one be sure to count out loud while you play to make sure you play with a steady beat. You can also play lemonade stand for fun since this is a favourite! Finally you also have All my friends. For this one, fill in the counting this week and try clapping it. It has ties over the bar line which makes the counting trickier. Be sure to take it one step at a time and once you feel comfortable try playing it on the piano.

Carmen

Songs: 

You have a couple songs to work on for this week. Peter pan and Aardvark boogie. For both of these songs, be sure to count out loud while you play. If you have any trouble try clapping and counting the rhythm alone then try playing it on the piano again.

Technique:

You have some scales to play! This week we are working on A major and E Major.

Ahara

Recommended daily practice time is 5-10 minutes per day

Songs: 

We have begun working on Monkeys! Online on the RCM account you can find all of the piano recordings to help you sing this song. Right now we can learn this song from the recordings as well as any youtube clips to help. In the coming weeks we will begin to learn how to read and learn music by ourselves.

Technique:

We learned about our breath this week! We went through a couple of warm up and techniques that will help us in filling up our ‘tire’ while keeping our shoulders away from our ears! Try breathing in through the straw and exhale like the sound of a balloon! You can do this to start off each practice session.
