October 5, 2022 Homework Preludio



Great work in class today!

Here’s what you should work on this week:

  • Great job these past few weeks practicing getting comfortable putting fingers down on the fingerboard!  I know it’s hard work, and I am so proud of all of you.
  • Keep doing left hand exercises! At this point, we’ve gone through a lot of them.  Pick two every day that you want to practice.
  • Keep working on our Christmas concert songs!  I have all the notes and lyrics written out:
  • Review the spider monkey song and the first line of Twinkle
Left hand Preludio exercises:
  • Train tracks
  • Hover train
  • Tapping fingers on the strings
  • Magic X
  • Practicing putting fingers down on right forearm
  • Practice the songs on the worksheet!  Start by singing the words to the songs, then singing the fingers and strings you’ll play.  Then learn the songs by plucking first!  Doing a little bit everyday will continue making you more comfortable with putting down and picking up fingers 🙂
  • When your left hand needs a break, play Twinkle rhythms on open strings
