February 21, 2024 Homework Accelerando

Welcome Accelerando!


Scale: E minor (on the sheet I gave out)
Cellos: remember your fingering is not identical to violin. You will put 3rd finger where 2 would go for violin, and 4 for where 3 would go in violin in most cases. You should not need to shift for any of the scales or pieces we are doing in class.
Finlandia: Focus on playing with great sound and a good bow hold (violins and viola focus on bent thumb and pinky, cellos bent thumb). If everyone can play this piece with a good bow hold, we will do cupcakes the next class. But pinkys and thumbs must be bent the entire piece!
Bow Hold Video Violin/Viola:
Bow Hold Video Cello:
Midnight Adventure: Listen Everyday! Clap through difficult rhythms before attempting to play. Cellos practice your melody starting around 45, you all are the star of the show there, so make it confident!
Hey Fiddle Fiddle: Have all of this ready to play. Violins/violas watch out for the lifts (they look like commas ,)
