Week of May 18-22:
Here are the uploaded videos of me playing the next section of all of the parts of our 3 concert songs, with their selected measures. Again, I did not play them perfectly, but you should get an idea of what your part sounds like.

I will be putting up FlipGrid assignments, next week, for your parts. Please continue to work on note accuracy, rhythm accuracy, and proper dynamics.

I am also reposting recordings of The Clarion Call and Vision Quest here:

Week of April 20-27


The 3rd nine weeks grading period ends tomorrow (Friday, April 24th).  Any FlipGrid retakes or 3rd quarter practice logs need to be turned in by then.  

Please play the Essential Elements exercise on p. 11 #49.  I have provided 2 videos of me playing the exercise.  The first one is for all woodwind instruments plus trumpet and percussion.  The second one is for low brass (trombone, baritone and tuba).

Essential Elements Video: p. 11 #49
Essential Elements p. 11 #49

Essential Elements Video: p. 11 #49 (low brass)
Essential Elements p. 11 #49 (low brass)

I am including a video review of the concepts of "key signature" and "accidental notes" which are notes that are not in the key signature.  You will need to understand these concepts in order to play our music or any music that you choose to play. Here is the video: Instructional Video: Key Signature/Accidentals

I am also including videos of me playing the first part of your concert songs.  They are not perfect but will give you an idea of what each part should sound like.  Next week I will assign FlipGrid assessments of these parts of the songs.  I will give feedback but they will not be graded.  Please email me if you have any questions.

 Mr. Silver will be posting links to helpful videos regarding instrument care/maintenance, embouchure and tone production as well as recordings of our spring concert music. 

You may click on the links here or go to the useful links page to hear recordings of our spring concert music.

No recording is available for Brazil.  The song is fairly easy so the students should be able to get an idea of how it sounds from the individual recordings of parts that I will post.
