September 20, 2023 Homework Accelerando

Welcome Accelerando!

I saw some great improvement this week, keep it up everyone! We were able to run three of our songs without stopping!Cripple Creek: We will try this fast next week, so be ready. 29-46 is still not quite perfect with the rests, so keep working on this.

Russian Dance: vln and vla: work on 33-41. Make sure there is a clear difference between C natural and C#.
We will play this faster next time ūüôā

Brave Fires: 18-26 counting. 26-34 for notes and bowing. Basses practice 34-42 for confidence. Nice and loud!

Barcarolle: Big focus on rhythm. Many of you are accidentally not holding half notes and dotted halves enough. Rhythm is the main focus for this. We will do a sectional next week and work through difficult notes, but I am hoping you all can come in with good rhythm so we only have to work on intonation/finding new pitches.

29-47 and 63-71 Big Spots for rhythm and pitch.

Cellos and Vlas: you all have the important part at 46-63, so make sure you know it well enough to play confidently.

Brave Fires:
