Hi everyone, thanks for coming in prepared this week! Here is what I would like for you to work on this week so we can continue this progress.
Ella- This week, take some time to learn the Breezeblocks beats. Try to have the first page learned for next time, but break it down so you can play the harder parts slower and the easier parts faster. Here is a link to the music (https://drive.google.com/open?id=1yxZt6ZHSYxf9SiGdJpA9JNblIYdnqSbH).
Jonah- This week, try to learn all of Lesson 2. Make sure you try slpowly first and you will get it! Also, this article will show you how to share sound so I can hear your song! https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362643-Sharing-Computer-Sound-During-Screen-Sharing
Noah- This week, try to get up to dicso beat number 9 with 70 on the metronome (to the quarter note, so 4 notes per click). Make sure you are locked in with your hi hat before playing the rest of the beat, and stay locked in when you do play it! In addition, listen to the songs linked at the bottom of this post and pick one you would like to learn (or think of a different song you like).
Sylvie- This week, try to get the entire disco page to 80 with fills. Bonus points if you can play through the whole page without stopping! As always, try to find new sounds to improvise with! In addition, listen to the songs linked at the bottom of this post and pick one you would like to learn (or think of a different song you like).
Samson- This week, try to finish Lesson 7. To help with timekeeping, use the metronome at a comfortable tempo on each 16th note so you can line up every note you play. Then cut the tempo in half so it only plays the eighth note. This is great practice for playing in time!
