Jaron – congratulations on finishing Allegretto!
– Recommended practice time: 15 min/day, 5 days/week
– Practice: G, D, and A Major scales (doing our usual posture and bow hold check each time before playing), and Andantino (focus on third line and leap 1-3, and scale-like phrase)

Olivia – hope your rehearsal went well today! Keep on practicing your 2-octave scales, sight-reading, and Go the Distance.

Amaia – missed you again today! Keep on practicing your scales and Long Long Ago.

Thea
– Reminder: we will be back in-person for your next lesson, and make sure to call the office if you need to cancel or reschedule for your spring break!
– Recommended practice time: 30 min/day, 5 days/week
– Practice: 2-octave Major scales (G and A), Concerning Hobbits (focus on shift to E, and syncopated rhythms in faster section), and Gavotte (try not to slow down in the areas we discussed, and try speeding up the tempo in the middle section).

Grace РI hope you feel better soon!
– Recommended practice time: 30 min/day, 5 days/week
– Practice: 2-octave Major and minor scales (practice making the shifts a bit smoother, and try to remember the difference between harmonic and melodic minor scales), and Musette (make sure to save the bow for the ending slurs, and play through slowly and get familiar with the notes again – it’s okay to take your time and ease back in after taking a break!).

Hendry
– Recommended practice time: 30 min/day, 5 days/week
– Practice: C, D, E-flat, F, and G Major scales (doing our usual posture and bow hold check each time before playing, and watching out for intonation especially with the initial placement of the first finger), D minor scale (natural, harmonic, melodic – also watching out for initial placement of the first finger), Witches Dance (make sure your high 3 and 4, G# and A, are stretched high enough, and watch out for rhythms in the ending phrase), and Catharsis (play through with consistent tempo until m. 105 to prepare for playing together next week).

Thank you, stay safe, and happy playing!
