– Reminders: Please try to be on time for your lesson and make sure to set up your iPad beforehand.
– Recommended practice time: 15-20 min/day, 5 days/week
– Practice: For Suzuki – Oh Come Little Children (make sure long and short notes are even, and to start each phrase with an up bow), May Song (dynamics – f and p), and Long Long Ago (rhythms, listen to YouTube audio while looking at the music). For Question, listen to the music on YouTube while looking at the music, paying close attention to the rhythms. The rhythms are tricky in this piece! It will sound quite different and weird, since the original music was not for viola, but it will still be helpful.
Thank you and happy playing! I hope everyone is staying well and healthy!
