How many minutes to practice: 30 mins a day

What to practice: This week Jonah I want you to work on playing Starlight all the way through using the beat sheet and form chart. In addition I also want you to practice this doubles exercise.

How to practice effectively: This week Jonah focus on practicing the whole song, especially the end. See if you can stay with it the whole time. Also work on getting the doubles exercise faster and using the rebound to relax and lift the stick after the second note.

Good work this week Jonah!



How many minutes to practice: 15 a day

What to practice: This week Samson I want you to get all we have of Rock With You going at a slow speed. Here is the link to the recording.

How to practice effectively: Try to nail all of the transitions and grooves, especially the last line. Listen to the song and figure out how fast you can play it well at this point. Work out each measure, and put them together!

Great job today Samson, keep it up!!



How many minutes to practice: 30mins a day

What to practice: This week Sylvie I want you to come up with some song ideas and practice the beats in Lesson 11.

How to practice effectively: For the beats, go slowly and try to count all the 16th notes out (1e+a 2e+a 3e+a 4e+a) and just get comfortable with the coordination, the speed will come later! To find some song ideas ask your dad about bands or songs that you like and pick a few that we can decide from!

Glad to be seeing you this summer Sylvie!!
