Another fantastic round of lessons, guys!  See homework for this week below.


A substantial improvement on keeping true to the correct rhythm as written on the page for Chanson this week, Maz!  Now, make sure you capitalize on this gain and vow never to disobey the rhythm that’s written on the page for any music you ‘recreate’ again!!

How parents can support practice: By checking in on Maz’s progress, and ensuring that he is able to meet his practice time everyday!
