them along with some of the history of those books in the 70'S.

Good Monday Morning
I hope evereyone had a good and solid week of playing music and
keeping musically fit! PLease remember to warm up just as we do
in class using excercise 1,2,3,4,7,12,13,14,and 22 with a metronome.
Please do not skip this. This helps maintain the range and flexibilities
we have been working on all year. This weeks goals you should be
able to play through all the music for the March Concert with the
same accuaracy we had in the classroom. This week as well you
should start looking at the new music given out just before we all
left campus and start working each peice for about 20 minutes each
daily if possible. Let me know if you have any questions. Send Emails
to my in box and I will respond right away. Have a great and
heartfelt Monday my friends!!!!
Jazz be looking at your Combo material as well, let me know if you
have any problems with the chord changes.
03/17/2020 Good Tuesday Everyone and Happy St. Patricks Day!
I hope all of you have had a good start to this week and have taken a
moment to take a deep breadth after the history of last week. I will be
sendingout later this week a Code to create your own personal Smart
Music Account. Smart Music made this available for free until June 30
during the Covid19 outbreak. I am still looking for music to fill out the
rest of the Final Concert in May. I will be posting links to the music on
this page for your reference as well as documents to read through for
musical analysis and intereptation of each piece. Please take care of
yourselves, your families, and each other as we move together through
this uncharted territory. Later this week I will set up a Zoom
conferencing tool to say hello face to face, as I already miss not making
music with you all.
