Hi Everyone,

Here are your assignments for this week:

Ariel

Recommended minutes to practice: 10 min/day

What to practice: Chords + Adele song

How to practice it most effectively: For the new shapes try finding the chords on their own a few times to practice – a good way to do this is by finding the shape, taking your hand off the guitar, and then finding the shape again. Try mixing them in with the song as well.

Declan

Recommended minutes to practice: 10 min/day

What to practice: Major Scale pattern for Bass + complete written assignment for next week (write out note names on the staff for each string, just letter names, no sharps or flats.)

How to practice it most effectively: Pick a few scales and use the major scale pattern to play through them. Complete written assignment for next week.

How parents can support practice: Encourage Declan to continue picking up the instrument for a few minutes each day and to complete his written assignment for this week.

Lucien

Recommended minutes to practice: 10 min/day

What to practice: C major Scale

How to practice it most effectively: Play through the notes on your instrument, think of “do re mi (fa sol la ti do)”, this is how to play that sound on your instrument!

How parents can support practice: Encourage Lucien to continue picking up the guitar for a few minutes each day

Griffin

Recommended minutes to practice: 15 min/day

What to practice: Stayin’ Alive

How to practice it most effectively: Play the main riff to Stayin Alive, use a metronome – try 105 as a speed to start with.

What to practice: Highway To Hell

How to practice it most effectively: Review the notes to Highway to Hell, and of you have time look at your precious songs as well (Spider-Man, Twinkle Twinkle) for bonus you can get started on the Kiss song we started this week.

How parents can support practice: Would be great of Jayden can continue spending a few minutes each day on the instrument.

Augustine

Recommended minutes to practice: 10 min/day

What to practice: Autumn Leaves (+ Happy Birthday for review)

How to practice it most effectively: Autumn Leaves – say aloud “short and long” as you play through the notes, and aim to make the long ones sound “long” and the short ones sound “short”.

Have a good week everyone!
