– Recommended practice time: 15 min/day, 5 days/week
– Practice: A, D, and G Major scales (pepperoni pizza pattern, make sure to do posture and bow hand checks before playing), violin starter pack first 2 pages with A, D, and G notes (watch out for the rests!), and Twinkle (theme and pepperoni pizza variation, remember to stretch your fingers when going down, so your notes aren’t too low).
– Recommended practice time: 30 min/day, 5 days/week
– Practice: Bb Major scale and review other scales on scale sheet, Mamma Mia (polish and try to make contrasts in dynamics and phrasing more obvious), and Mirror duet (first half and focus on bowings and shifts, continue to look onto the rest of the piece if you wish!)
Thank you, everyone, and hope you are all enjoying your summer! Happy playing!
