– 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 F Major arpeggios 1-3-1-1-3-1-4 and then going back down), Spring (make sure to have m. 1-20 mastered by next week’s lesson, and now that you have the brook 2-notes-per-bow bowings down, see if you can play the sixteenth notes a little faster), and see if there’s anything you’d like to add to our Zero to Hero arrangement!

– 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, and focusing on the descending part of E Major with high fourth finger), D minor scale (2 octaves – natural, melodic, harmonic – focus on melodic fingerings on G string), 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!
