Grades 4-6

What we did this week:

This week we took a break from the scales and arpeggios to focus on the Lully Gavotte and to learn all the bowing patterns.

What work is to be done this weekend:

Please practice the bowing and rhythm patterns of the Lully Gavotte.

What are we doing next week?

Next week we will run through the Gavotte and introduce the Bb minor harmonic scale and the Bb arpeggio.

How much time should your student be practicing each day?

Try for a 45 minute practice session focusing on the Gavotte and the bowing patterns.

How can you help your child?

Please ensure your child has some practice time in front of the mirror to correct bowing patterns and also spend some time focusing on rhythmic patterns with the metronome.
