Practice page 2 & 3 in the new book, focusing on the dynamics (p & f) and timing (quarter notes, half notes, and dotted half notes). Practice your scales: C, G, and D major! D major has two sharps (F# & C#). Next week we will start deciding what song to work on longer-term, or a song to potentially play at the recital!
Practice playing the chords for the Bruno Mars song “When I was your man” using the fingers 1, 3, 5 in your RH. Try to get used to this formation for root position chords. Practice the C major scale (remember the thumb and finger 3 are the ones who either go under or over). Next week we will start deciding what song to do for the recital!
We finished the song “Halloween” today. Practice at home, both hands together. Next week we will start deciding what song to do for the recital!
Great work everyone! :)
