Jaron
– Recommended practice time: 15 min/day, 5 days/week
– Practice: G, D, and A Major scales (1 octave, doing our usual posture and bow hold check each time before playing), G Major scale (2 octaves, make sure to check which strings has a 2-3 or 1-2 fingering position), and Etude (first two lines now, play through slowly and all together, and make sure to not only read the fingering numbers at the top, but the actual notes themselves too).

Olivia – good luck with your test!
– Recommended practice time: 30 min/day, 5 days/week
– Practice: Review 2-octave Major and minor scales (try to memorise fingering patterns for each scale, and focus on B and B-flat Major – make sure to stretch fourth finger for B Major), Go the Distance (practice full run-throughs), and Spring (first page shifts and bowings, and play through second page slowly and get familiar with the notes).

Isabella
– Recommended practice time: 15 min/day, 5 days/week
– Practice: Practice holding violin under chin with hands and no hands, and also with hand in plucking position (make sure thumb is on the corner of the fingerboard while plucking), practice Les Toreador on first page of Violin Starter Packet and Three Point Shot and Mix ‘Em Up on the next page (which includes G string), and review bow hold and have fun experimenting with bowing open strings, now adding bowing each string separately!

Thea – congratulations on finishing your last lesson at ABC! Keep in touch and best wishes on your future endeavours!

Grace – missed you today! Keep on practicing your scales and Hunter’s Chorus!

– Practice: C, D, E-flat, E, F, and G Major scales (2 octaves, doing our usual posture and bow hold check each time before playing, and focus on new scale E Major – make sure to stretch fourth finger higher), D minor scale (2 octaves – natural, melodic, harmonic, focus on natural scale and making sure it sounds different than major), Gavotte (make sure pizz. at the end is a little faster and make sure to pluck over fingerboard, and watch out for bowings and accidentals), and Catharsis (whole first page – watch out for key changes between D and E-fat Major, and look ahead at second page if you’d like).
