Hi Everyone,

Here are your assignments for this week:

Ella

Recommended minutes to practice: 10-20 min/day , 5 days

What to practice: Play through Repertoire

How to practice it most effectively: Step 1 – get tuned up Step 2 – play songs from your list of “playable repertoire.”

How parents can support practice: Encourage Ella to aim for 5 practice sessions during the week, as consistent practice will be essential to taking the step on the instrument.

Lucien

Recommended minutes to practice: 10 min/day

What to practice: #23 Surf Rock with Metronome

How to practice it most effectively: Set the metronome to 65 to start with. The tendency will likely be to rush so aim to correct yourself by purposely trying to play a bit behind.

How parents can support practice: Encourage Lucien to keep going with the metronome and to take smaller sections (1 bar, 2 bars) and loop them. He should be good to practice on his own but may need a reminder to use the strategies listed above.

Augustine

Recommended minutes to practice: 10 min/day

What to practice: 53 + get started with the next few examples as well

How to practice it most effectively: Use a metronome, try smaller sections for difficult parts.

How parents can support practice: Encourage Augustin to try smaller sections and then piece the music together like puzzle pieces with larger sections.

Jayden

Recommended minutes to practice: 10 min/day

What to practice: #15 in Hal Leonard Book

How to practice it most effectively: Loop small sections (1 or 2 or 4 bars at a time) and count out loud along with your guitar (1 2 3 4)

How parents can support practice: Regular time on the instrument will be essential as Jayden takes the next step on the instrument. See if it’s possible to set up some regular times to practice as part of the routine.

Van

Recommended minutes to practice: 10 min/day

What to practice: #15 in Hal Leonard Book (move on to 16 if you finish)

Have a good week everyone!
