Hi Everyone,

Here are your assignments for this week:

Paul

How to practice it most effectively: Play as low and as high on the instrument as you can for the given limitations (ex. Position, string, or string set)

Tresa

Recommended minutes to practice: 10 min/day

What to practice: Open chords, switching between two chords

How to practice it most effectively: Use a metronome, and switch between the 4th beat and the following 1st beat. Google “metronome” and one will come up as a plugin in the search engine. Try different speeds, and try switching “faster” at slower speeds to work toward faster speeds.

Yasmim

How to practice it most effectively: Try two different note orders [4 2 0, and 0 2 4]. Then you can try [4 2 0 2 4 4 4]

How parents can support practice: Encourage Yasmim to pick up the guitar and try the notes she’s playing in lesson, [4 2 0] and [0 2 4] would be good to try.

Maurya

How parents can support practice: Encourage Maurya to take a look at his lesson materials.

Have a good week everyone!
