Hi Everyone,

Here are your assignments for this week:

Ella

Recommended minutes to practice: 10 min/day

What to practice: Killer Queen (Melody)

How to practice it most effectively: Play “long notes” and check fingerings (1st finger/1st fret, 2nd/2nd etc.)

How parents can support practice: Encourage Ella to continue picking up the guitar and taking a look at her lesson materials.

Lucien

Recommended minutes to practice: 15 min/day

What to practice: Au Clair De La Lune

How to practice it most effectively: Use a metronome at 80, try both parts 1 and 2. Check fingerings (2nd finger/2nd fret).

How parents can support practice: Encourage Lucien to continue picking up the guitar and taking a look at his lesson materials.

Augustine

Recommended minutes to practice: 10 min/day

What to practice: #39

How to practice it most effectively: Use a metronome at a slow speed, aim for quick transitions. Also try without a metronome, one string at a time to check that each is ringing out, then play them all together from that same hand position.

How parents can support practice: Encourage Augustine to continue picking up the guitar and taking a look at his lesson materials.

Jayden

Recommended minutes to practice: 10 min/day

What to practice: #7 (First Line)

How to practice it most effectively: Start by finding the notes on the instrument in the order they happen to review. Then, play through sections (1 bar, 2 bars, whole thing) and think “tick tock like a clock” for timing. Use the metronome if you like, but trying without is a good way to go for this week.

How parents can support practice: Encourage Jayden to continue picking up the guitar and taking a look at his lesson materials.

Have a good week everyone!
