Hello Everyone!

Here is the homework for this week!

Enjoy!

Julian

Recommended daily practice time is 5-10 minutes per day

Songs: 

We have completed Level C in the faber adventure books! Congratulations Julian! We are now moving onto the level 1 Faber adventure book. We tried out both Firefly and Little River. You can play these during the week. Remember to tap and count before you play then count out loud as you play once you are comfortable.

Theory:

We also learned about Legato today. Legato means to play smoothly. I like to call this sticky fingers. Each note is held until you play the next note. So they stick together. Legato is shown on the music with a curved line. Look out for them!

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: 

This week we will stick to our plan and tackle Burlesque in G major, Swirling leaves, and Climb up on an Elephant. These will be for our exam, so be sure to go through them carefully.

Technique:

We have A, E and D minor scale to review for this week. Hands separately and you must look at the Harmonic and natural version of each scale. You must also play through the triads both broken and solid triads.

Songs: 

Good work this week Renaud! We will continue to work on Grandmother this week. Try getting a family member to play it for you, have a listen then try playing it yourself. You also have All my friends. For this song try clapping the rhythm before you play. Once you feel comfortable, try playing it on the piano.

Carmen

Recommended daily practice time is 10-15 minutes per day

Songs: 

This week we worked on memorizing Pirate of the North Sea. Continue trying to memorize the whole song and be sure to count while you play it! You may also try it with the metronome set to a comfortable speed. You also have Peter Pan and Aardvark Boogie. As always counting and playing is very important. You also need to watch out for staccatos, legatos and dynamics. As an addition, try recording yourself to help you memorize your song. Listen to it a bunch of times!

Technique:

We are continuing with our scales and this week you can try out a flat scale. F Major. Before playing be sure to review how many flats it has as well as what fingers you will be using to play the scale.

Carmen

Recommended daily practice time is 5-10 minutes per day

Songs: 

We are continuing our work on Monkeys. This week we talked about how important it is to read and understand the text. Go through each word and make sure you know what everything means. If you don’t know something, don’t be afraid to ask a grownup for help! In addition to reading the text, try singing with just the piano track and remember there are 8 claps before you come in! For warm-ups this week, use the recording we made of our lesson to help you!
