I hope everyone had a good couple of snow days and is having a smooth transition back to in-person school!

Jaron
– Reminder: get your camera fixed before our next lesson
– 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), Allegretto (practice playing through with a consistent tempo and without stopping, and keep up the accents throughout the whole piece), and Andantino (first line – play through slowly and get familiar with the notes).

Olivia
– Reminder: if you want to send me a recording, make sure to do it before 10 pm Monday night please!
– Recommended practice time: 30 min/day, 5 days/week
– Practice: 2-octave Major and minor scales (try to memorise fingering pattern for each scale), Mamma Mia (make sure dynamics are obvious and watch out for third finger D so that it’s not too flat), and Go the Distance (make sure syncopated rhythms are uneven long-short and differentiated from the even short-short rhythms).

Amaia – I missed you again today, keep on practicing your scales and Long Long Ago!

Grace 
– Recommended practice time: 30 min/day, 5 days/week
– Practice: 2-octave Major scales (watch out for finger spacing in high positions for E Major and F Major), 2-octave minor scales (A minor natural and harmonic), Judas Maccabeas (focus on saving the bow in the fourth line and having syncopated long-short rhythm at the end), and Musette (play through slowly and get familiar with the notes).

Hendry – congratulations on finishing Two Grenadiers!
– Recommended practice time: 30 min/day, 5 days/week
– Practice: C, D, E-flat, F, and G Major scales (2 octaves, doing our usual posture and bow hold check each time before playing, and watching out and listening closely for intonation), D minor scale (1 octave, natural, harmonic, melodic), Witches Dance (first four lines – play through slowly and get familiar with the notes), and Catharsis (watch out for high third finger in D Major sections and play through with consistent tempo in preparation for duet playing).

Thank you, stay safe, and happy playing!
