I am also reposting recordings of the concert songs here.

Week of April 20-26:

All make up work must be turned in to me by this Friday which is the end of the third marking period.

Here is a video of me playing page 8, #37 in the Essential Elements book:
Essential Elements p.8 #37

I played it in cut time.  Try to see how fast you can play it correctly.  I will also be putting up a FlipGrid assignment for that.


Here are the uploaded videos of me playing all of the parts of our 3 concert songs only up to measure 23 (and measure 27 in Aztec Dance). 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 for that part of the songs. Work on note accuracy, rhythm accuracy, and proper dynamics.

Continue to use MusicRacer.com for note reading and fingering drills.  They are pretty fun. Make sure that you try to use the Essential Elements Interactive for interesting activities.

Take care and email me if you need anything!
