String Update/Assignment

Good afternoon!  It looks like we may have a snow day tomorrow- what a great opportunity to squeeze in some extra practice time! :)  I hope you stay safe and warm inside.

Third Graders
Today we continued to work on our bowing.  We played through the examples on pages 16 and 17 in the book.

  • D Scale, ascending (up) and descending (down)
  • Page 18 with the bow! :)

Fourth Graders
4A:  Today we played through the songs on page 22.  Then, the violins and violas learned how to finger A with the 4th finger (on the D string).   We also played ALL of Hickory Dickory Dock, and played on the G string.

  • Work on bow technique and posture!  Some of you were a little droopy today :)
  • Page 23
  • Hickory Dickory
4B:  Today we reviewed that pesky C's tough to squeeze the second finger so close to the first!  We also worked on the William Tell Overture. 

  • Pages 33 and 34 in the book
  • Hickory Dickory
  • William Tell Overture (#190)
