I hope you are all staying healthy and taking care of yourselves and the others around you!
I have moved all material online to CANVAS, easier for you to get to the material. Work on the lessons and enrichment throughout the week as like
last week all work is due Friday May 1, 2020 by 11:59 PM.
Have a great week I am pleased with how each of you is doing and that at least everyone in the program has looked at the Modules last week!!!
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.
