Hi, everyone!

Eliana

Missed you this week! Here’s a reminder of what to focus on at home for next week:

  • Czerny No. 1: Good work on playing HT, clean up chord changes, and practice playing a little faster.
  • Czerny No. 2: prepare LH
  • Bourée (pg. 24) – DONE
  • Gigue in A major (pg. 48) – Separate hands – practice the notes. Count! Check rhythm. Careful of lifts, slurs, staccato.
  • Clementi – sonatina in C, movement 1: RH prepare, LH if time
  • theory: practice clapping rhythm on pg. 34
  • Recommended practice: daily, 45mins each time

Claire

Gianna

  • pg. 25, music track 11 – sing along to the track and make sure the fingers and hands are curved. Technique is very important!
  • pg. 26 & 27, music track 12 & 13 – focus on playing 2 black notes at the same time, make sure hands and arms are graceful when moving from one set of black notes to the next
  • pg. 28 & 29, music track 14 & 15 – this is the same approach, but for 3 black notes

Recommended practice: at least 3 times a week, 15mins each time

Pg. 12 Ferris Wheel – slow practice, keep counting! And be careful of swapping hands
Pg. 14 “Mexican Jumping Beans” – practice at a faster tempo. Staccato!
