You all are such hard workers! I am proud of how far you all go each week!

Scales/Arpeggios to practice:
D major – 1 octave

Technique fun:
“Grandma rides a motorcycle” (all sixteenths). A B C# D – then switch to a L2 (violins) or second finger (cellos) to signify the flat tire!

For later:
Cellists: Here is a Video Tutorial on the 2-octave G major scale!

Uni-Tunes book:
[No writing finger names/notes in your Uni-Tunes book. You may write finger names and notes in all of your other music. Just no writing in the Uni-Tunes book so that it serves as a reading book for you!]
