Violin Update/Assignment

Third Graders:
We made connections between the music  notation we have been learning in general music, and the notes we know for violin.   They are the same pitches, since we are reading in treble clef in our classroom AND lessons!   We played through "Mozart Melody," which is the same as "Twinkle, Twinkle."  This will be one of our concert songs at the end of the year :)


  • Practice scales!  I can tell which students have been working on scales and which have not- scales are essential to help improve tone, pitch memory, and more!
  • Review page 15, and continue on to page 16.  Page 16 will be a great review of playing open strings with the bow.
Fourth Graders:
4A:  We reviewed all of the notes on the staff and the pitches in the D scale, then tried sight reading!  We read through the B part of "Hickory Dickory Dock."  This will be one of our concert songs.  It was especially fun to play because of a new technique:  left hand pizzicato.

  • D Scale
  • Pg. 22
  • Hickory Dickory Dock
4B:  We also started some songs for our Spring concert!  We played through the A part of "Hickory Dickory Dock," "William Tell Overture," and then started "Submarine."  In addition, we reviewed the songs from last week in our book.  

  • D Scale
  • Pg. 34
  • Pg. 44 #190 (William Tell)
  • Hickory Dickory Dock
**Please note:  Next week is Martin Luther King Day.  Lessons will resume the following Monday!**

Below are some extra videos from last week's Performance Day:
