    Music Links:
    By now you should have signed up for Smart Music from the email
    link sent Thursday 3/26/2020 to your school email account. Please
    get signed up if you are not. Let me know if you have any questions.
    Each class now has playing opportunities to submit so I can listen and
    provide further feedback for your continued skill training during our
    time apart. Please make sure you warm up each and every day as
    listed below. I have been running every day but also eating
    homemade Focaccia as well!
    Let me know if you have any questions or needs, I am here for
    Have a great week! FIVE DAYS TILL SPRING BREAK!!!!
    Good Monday Morning
    I hope everyone 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 exercise 1,2,3,4,7,12,13,14, and 22 with a metronome.
    Please do not skip this. This helps maintain the range and flexibility
    we have been working on all year. This week's goals you should be 
    able to play through all the music for the March Concert with the
    same accuracy 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 piece for about 20 minutes each
    daily if possible. Let me know if you have any questions. Send Emails
    to my inbox and I will respond right away.  Have a great and 
    heartfelt Monday my friends!!!!
    3/17/20 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 breath after the history of last week. I will be
    sending out 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 interpretation 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.
