String Update/Assignment (Performance Day)

Today was PERFORMANCE DAY!!  This is an opportunity for each student to play a piece that represents their best.  Below are some of the benefits of Performance Day:

  • Students play for, and inspire, their peers
  • Students gain independence playing alone
  • The more frequently they perform, the less nerves there will be come concert time
  • I can more accurately assess each student, and help them one-on-one
  • Each student becomes a teaching tool for the others in class, and students may offer suggestions to help their peers. (For example, today one student told another "You are doing an awesome job, you just need more bow pressure"). 
  • It's fun!
Before we get to the videos, here are the assignments for the week:

Fourth Graders
4A:  Page 11, pizzicato first then bow

4B:  Submarine song, #106 in book

Third Graders
Page 9 (pizzicato), bow tube practice, String Name sheet (bow)

(note:  not all students choose to be videotaped)
