March 29, 2023 Homework Sinfonia Allegro



 work on shifting sections we discussed in class.
 Listen to the recording we made in class while following along with your music. Identify and write down three areas by measure number that need improvement in your section. For example- m. 5 the rhythm was not together. You will turn this into Ms. Joann. Once you have identified those sections, practice them.
Begin looking at dynamics on the planets.


Monster Mambo:

Beginning to downbeat of 37 should be learned and polished!

Practice measure 36 (36 & 28 for cell0)

Count yourself in, use a metronome.

Cello/bass SNIFF! It’s only an 8th note so it must be short!

⭐⭐️Learn 37-53

Play SLOWLY and carefully to make sure you are playing with low 1s (B flats & F naturals) and low 2s (G naturals, C naturals, F naturals and B flats)



Practice col legno to arco with a metronome!

Outside players: drop out of col legno early, be ready for arco section

Inside players: play through col legno section, enter into arco entrance when you can

In the slower melody, all strings should play “dreamily” (thanks Ethan). No bow stopping! Very smooth bow changes.

Remember to play super softly!
