Wednesday folks, make sure to check your emails and schedules to see if you have a make-up lesson next week! If not, I’ll see you for either summer lessons or in September!

Jaron – great work sight-reading the last two lines of Allegretto!
– Recommended practice time: 15 min/day, 5 days/week
– Practice: G, D, and A Major scales (with our usual posture and bow hold check each time before playing, and make sure you squeeze your middle and ring fingers together on the fingerboard), Perpetual Motion (try to play through without stopping, and make sure third ring finger is not stretched too high), and Allegretto (play through whole thing slowly, especially last two lines, and get used to the notes).

Olivia – congratulations on finishing the right-side-up of the Mirror duet!
– Reminder: discuss with your mom whether or not you want a lesson on your birthday
– Recommended practice time: 30 min/day, 5 days/week
– Practice: review 2-octave major and minor scales (try to memorise fingering patterns for all of them, and focus on new scales B-flat and B Major), Mirror duet (upside down part now, play through first few lines slowly and get used to the notes), and Go the Distance (I promise we’ll look at this again next week! Keep on focusing on the shifting sections).

Amaia – congratulations on finishing Song of the Wind!
– Recommended practice time: 15 min/day, 5 days/week
– Practice: G, D, and A Major scales (with our usual posture and bow hold check each time before playing, and make sure your thumb and pinky fingers are curved on the bow), and Go Tell Aunt Rhody (try to play through without pausing in the middle).

Crosby – great work on Song of the Wind today, thank you for practicing during these few weeks of break!
– Recommended practice time: 15 min/day, 5 days/week
– Practice: 0-1-2-3-2-1-0 fingering patterns on each string (warm-up), G, D, and A Major scales (with our usual posture and bow hold check each time before playing), and Song of the Wind (work on retakes/bow circles and try to play through with a steady beat and without stopping).

Thank you, happy playing, and have a wonderful summer!
