November 2, 2022 Homework Accelerando


Incredible work so far!  I am so proud of our progress- keep up the good work.

  • Keep reviewing all our scales: C major, D major, A major, and G major
    • We are almost ready to add another one to our growing collection 🙂
    • Violins- make sure you differentiate between lo 2s and high 2s
    • Cellos- be sure you know when to play a note with third finger and when to use 2nd finger
  • Work on the pieces that you are the least comfortable with!
  • Practice 10 of the hardest measure from every piece each day.  Look for sneaky hard parts with lots of rests or where there are pattern changes
Scales to Practice
    1. Metronome markings:
      Beyond the Thunder- quarter note = 115

      Snow Day!- quarter note = 125
