Hello Everyone!

Here is the homework for this week!

Enjoy!

Marita

Recommended daily practice time is 5-10 minutes per day

Songs: 

For homework we will be trying out all of the music with a drum beat! This is to help you keep a steady tempo while you play. You have Firefly, Little River, Ferris Wheel, Sailing in the Sun and Mexican Jumping bean. Play all of them with the drum track.

Theory: 

We learned about Staccato this week. Mexican jumping bean has staccatos. Remember these are short and jumpy notes!

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!

We will continue 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.
