October 5, 2022 Homework Accelerando


Great job in class today!

  1.  Next week, instead of regular rehearsal, we will be visited by a guest ensemble!  This gives you 2 weeks to start learning our new piece and keep polishing the others.
  2. Listen to each piece and follow along with your part in front of you!  Do this at least 4 times in the next 2 weeks.
  3. In Snowy Woods, pay close attention to intonation.  Write in where there is a low 2, a half step, or a natural sign.
  4. For all pieces, focus especially on where your section has the main melody.  Be prepared for your section to perform it in class in 2 weeks!

Scales to practice:

  • C Major (violins 1 octave, viola/cello 2 octaves) and D major scales
Scales to Practice
Concert Pieces:
