No class next week!!! Spring Break!  See you Wednesday, April 11!

PreSoli– This week we worked on scales and songs.  We even tried some harmony!! Today we continued Twinkle with our monkey rhythm!  See how much you can remember in your practice time this week.  Especially focus on getting G ready when playing open A. Work very carefully on making sure you place your bow on one string at a time.  Today we also worked on our D major scale going up and down the D and A strings.  This week’s homework: keep your fingers close to the strings.  Practice lifting them only enough to get off the string.

First Part of Twinkle: D-D-A-A-B-B-A—G-G-F#-F#-E-E-D—

NEXT PART: A-A-G-G-F#-F#-E—-A-A-G-G-F#-F#-E—–and then back to the first part!!!
