I hope everyone is staying safe and social distancing! It’s a tough time but we will get through it together.

Olivia – thank you for joining us online!
– Recommended practice time: 30-45 min/day, 5 days/week
– Practice: G and D Major scales (two octaves), A minor natural and harmonic scale (one octave). Since G Major is an easy one for you, use the scale to focus on your bow hand and posture. For D Major, practice your shifting and intonation in third position. For A minor, go over the definitions for natural and harmonic scales and remember to play an F natural instead of an F#. Also practice your school orchestra pieces and focus on the passages with dotted rhythms. Try saying the rhythms out loud first before playing them.

Thank you and happy playing!
