Grace
– Recommended practice time: 20 min/day, 5 days/week
– Practice: G, A, B-flat, and C Major scales (2 octaves, make sure your intonation isn’t too sharp and focus especially on new scale, B-flat Major), Minuet 2 (string crossings on open strings and then add fingerings when you’re comfortable – don’t be afraid to go crazy with the elbow and to go overboard!), and Minuet 3 (play slowly and get familiar with the notes, watch out for bowings and slurs in particular in the second section).

Olivia – I missed you today!
– Recommended practice time: 30 min/day, 5 days/week
– Practice: Same as last week – review 2-octave Major and minor scales (try to memorise fingering patterns for each scale), Mirror duet (upside-down part and try playing with YouTube video from TSO), Go the Distance (shifting and rhythms in ending section), and see if there’s anything you’d like to add to our Zero to Hero arrangement.

Hendry
– Recommended practice time: 20 min/day, 5 days/week
– Practice: C, D, E-flat, and F Major scales (2 octaves, do your usual posture and bow hold check each time before playing, and try to memorise key signatures for each scale), Musette (prepare for final play-through and make sure to stretch pinky finger and add dynamics), and Catharsis (first viola part, play through slowly and get familiar with the notes, watch out for C# high third finger).

Thank you, stay safe, and happy playing!
