Practice Measure 21-29

Cellos, practice your harmonics in 22 & 26! I decided to have all cellos play that too harmonic! We will talk about the double stop next time.

Violins, focus on switching between tremolo and non-tremolo notes

Practice measure 29-end (KEY CHANGE!)


Violins & violas, focus on your sixteenth notes (printed as eight notes with double lines).

***Violin 1: practice 9-12 with separately bows. Work up the tempo.

Go back to your slower tempo and add in the slurs. Work section with slurs up to tempo.

Practice 17-21 for the high notes!


Pieces of Eight: Reminders from Last Week!

Practice with a metronome and slowly work up the tempo.

We will be working on dynamics next so notice your music’s markings!
