Hi Everyone,

Please note I will be away Feb 27, but Daniel will be filling in and there will still be lessons that day for everyone that’s signed up.

Here are your assignments for this week:

Clara

Recommended minutes to practice: 5 min/day

What to practice: Songs from Book

How to practice it most effectively: Start with the one strum per chord, also try adding in the double time pattern we’ve been looking at.

Killian

Recommended minutes to practice: 5 min/day

What to practice: The Lion Sleeps Tonight and Avengers Theme

How to practice it most effectively: For the chords count out loud and have your playing on the instrument follow the counting.

Hugo

Recommended minutes to practice: 15 min/day

What to practice: Scales, Ear Training

How to practice it most effectively: Review D and A shapes, and intervals up to a 5th.

Peter

Recommended minutes to practice: 10 min/day

What to practice: Note Names

How to practice it most effectively: Focus on the letter names for now and don’t worry about sharps # or flats b yet. Start with the E string and take it one note at a time, aiming to memorize them eventually all the way up the string. Saying the letter names out loud at the same time as playing the note can be a good way to practice this. You could try in sequence, example – E – E F – E F G – E F G A (etc. adding one note each time).

Andrea

Recommended minutes to practice: 5 min/day

What to practice: Mary Had A Little Lamb, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Happy Birthday

How to practice it most effectively: Take song sections one at a time and then piece them together (example: line 1, line 2, then lines 1 + 2). Note that guitar “tab” notation is read in reverse.

Have a good week everyone!
