November 1, 2023 Homework Accelerando

Welcome Accelerando!

Scale: Practice your A major scale every day. Sheet Music is Attached for those who need reminders.

Violins & Violas remember High 3s!
Cellos remember 2nd finger stretches and pushes the other fingers up
Brave Fires: This is going better but mm. 26-45 are still a little scary. Practice this along with the recordings and count like crazy!
Cripple Creek: Practice this for counting and intonation. Especially when you have the melody
Nutcracker: Shorter but still loud articulation . Pay more attention to dynamics
Barcarolle:  Review Rhythms. A lot of you are miscounting dotted half notes still. Remember also that ties are the two notes added together (so it you have a dotted half note (3 beats) tied to a quarter note (1 beat) then you will have to hold it for 4 beats. I have attached a sheet giving a more thorough explanation.
Practice all of this this week for rhythm!
Intonation needs special attention:
1st: 21-29
2nds: 36-47 (C# and D#), 61-71,
Violas: 44-63
Cellos:29-37, 43-47, 61-71
