Lucas

Recommended Practice Time: 15-30mins every day

What to practice: This week Lucas I want you to play through Lesson 2 and write in all of the counts for the Reading portion

How to practice effectively: Remember that we are just writing in the numbers exactly like how they are written in the first line, but for every line. Ask your parents or your brother for help if you need.

Good work today, keep asking questions and figuring out everything that confuses you!

 

Ella

Recommended Practice Time: 30mins every day

What to practice: Next week Ella I want you to play through Etude IV again and try to work on the beat that we worked on today which is posted here.

How to practice effectively: For the Peters etude, focus on keep the accents big and stopping the stick with the back fingers when it hits the drum so that the taps can be really quiet. Just go slowly and take some time everyday on it. For Verbatim, focus on just practicing that hi-hat technique as much as possible, feel the way the arm pumps and the wrist relaxes to get the notes out. Work on this slowly with 16th notes and 8ths notes and find your tempo limit. Then work each day to get it closer to the song tempo which is around 74 I think.

And here is some fun listening if you’re interested:

Imogen Heap, Speak for Yourself

Muse, Black Holes and Revelations

Great work ethic today Ella!
