– 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 see if your muscle memory kicks in, and focus on E and F Major shifts – remember for both it is 1-2-3 and then shift on A string, not 1-2-3-4 shift), Spring (make sure to have m. 20-38 mastered by next week’s lesson, remember the chromatic phrase fingerings don’t matter as much, just make sure the half steps are prominent), and see if there’s anything you’d like to add to our Zero to Hero arrangement, especially with the speaking parts and tapping the violin!

Hendry – hope you’re having fun on your travels!
– Recommended practice time: 30 min/day, 5 days/week
– 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), D minor scale (2 octaves – natural, melodic, harmonic), A Major scale (1 octave, open positions with high 3 on G and D strings), Gavotte (prepare for final play-through next lesson with higher fourth finger) and Hibari (remember the small differences between the first and second verses).

Thank you, stay safe, and happy playing!
