Hello Everyone!

Here is the homework for this week!

Enjoy!

Marita

Recommended daily practice time is 5-10 minutes per day

Songs: 

This week you can continue to play all my friends and Lemonade Stand. When you play in 3/4 time signature, it’s best to think about it like a bouncing ball. The main beat is on beat 1. Bounce 2 + 3 + Bounce 2+ 3+. There shouldn’t be any pauses in between the measures. Just keep going! We have also begun a few songs from the level 1 book! Next week we will have officially completed the primer level. Good work! Using the sheets provided begin playing the first couple of songs in the new book! Have fun and enjoy!

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!

Songs: 

Good work with Hey Mr. Half Note, and Alouette! You can continue to work on Alouette since it is so much fun! I have also sent a longer version for you to play through. We have also begun learning notes on the staff, the first song is C march. Try this one out this week and we will continue on in the book!

We have begun our exam prep, so this week you can focus on improving each piece that you will play. The focus should be on articulation, phrasing and dynamics. Be sure to play exactly what is on the page, as well as room for interpretation. Experiment this week and see what stories you can create to help your interpretation.

Technical requirements:

For the exam you will be expected to play C, G and F Major as well as their relative minor scales. a, e and d minor scales. This week we will work through natural scales and next week we will look into harmonic minor scales.
