Hi Everyone,
Here are your assignments for this week:
Declan   ***Please see note below
Recommended minutes to practice:  15 min/day 
What to practice:  Bass line to "All The Things You Are" 
How to practice most effectively:  Go through the notes one at a time, one bar at a time at first.  After you can play through bar 1 by itself, add the 2nd bar and see if you can play the first two together without stopping, then continue with bars 3+4 etc. Aim to play through the first 4 lines for next class. 
How parents can support practice:   Encouraging and suggesting spending time on the instrument is the best way to support practice at home.
***If possible, please ensure Declan has a folder for his music sheets for next class, thank you!
Griffin
Recommended minutes to practice: 15 min/day  

What to practice: Circle of fourths scales + The Scientist Chords

How to practice most effectively: Practice both with a metronome (60bpm) at 2 beats per note/chord switch

How parents can support practice: Encouraging and suggesting spending time on the instrument is the best way to support practice at home.
Augustine

Recommended minutes to practice: 10 min/day

What to practice: Old MacDonald, rhythm + timing ***If you finish Old MacDonald, start looking at Shake It Off.

How to practice most effectively: Start by taking one bar at a time, aiming to play each note consecutively without breaks between the notes. Try this with 2 bars + 4 bars and work your way up to playing the whole song in time.

How parents can support practice: Have Augustine look at the transitions between bars where there's a tendency to pause. At these spots he can look at playing a few notes previous, and a few notes after the point of transition to smooth it out.
Have a good week everyone!
