Hi, everyone!

 

Eliana

Continue writing a plan for your daily home practice. Use the reminders I wrote as a guide on the goals for each item.

 

Lia

*important* Make sure to follow the steps & reminders in your notebook when you’re practicing your pieces. Very important!

focus on page 41 & 42 of your lesson, and remember to follow the steps I wrote in your notebook.

Recommended practice: at least 3 times a week, 20mins each time

Rachelle

A few things to remember for home practice:

  • breath: steady inhalation (4 counts) and exhalation on “sss” (4 counts, then 6, 8, 10, 12)
  • breath: lip trill on one note, starting from A above middle C, then the same for the next note up, etc. til E, then same process coming back down
  • vocalizing on lip trill opening to “ee” (“brrrreeee!”), starting on A above middle C, and same process as above for notes
  • new: singing “ssssssah!”, using the hiss to get the breath started for “ah”
  • vowels are singer’s best friends!
  • “You’ve got a friend” – find breath points and “ah” sounds in the lyrics
  • do not be afraid of your voice :)

Gianna

Gianna’s Rainbow Song – the notes for the whole song is at the back of your Rainbow Paper. Make sure to place your right hand fingers on C-D-E before you start playing. Use your left hand to point at the letter names and sing the letter names as you play!

Pg 54 & 55 (music track 28): make sure to keep singing the letter names as you play.

Well done for playing the previous songs so well!

Recommended practice: daily practice, 15mins each time

Maddy

Bach Minuet – practice HT, with repeats. Use metronome at 70. Focus on repeats and transitions, and

Handel – revise RH & LH separately with proper fingering. Remember to keep your eyes on the music!

Recommended practice: daily, at least 30mins each time

Emet

Kite – curve fingers, please. Check fingering for some LH overlap notes.

A mixed-up song – make sure to say the letter names while playing the notes. Start revising the “boxed” sections first. Notes need to be more secure!

Kollel

Waltz : developing well! Make sure you’re not doing sudden lifts with your wrists when you’re tucking your thumb under your fingers.

Blues: practice separate hands for the first page, hands together if you can!
