4A: We started by reviewing the parts of the violin, viola, and cello. Then, we discussed some of our concert pieces, including one very funny joke piece!
4B and 4C: We discussed our concert songs, then played a D Major scale. It was a great warm-up and got our fingers moving! We also started to play a new song called "Concerto for Triangle."
- D Scale
- Concerto for Triangle
- Try to get back into your practicing routine from last year! :)
5A and 5B: After discussing our music for the Winter Concert, we played the D Major Scale with varied rhythms as a warm-up. Then, we started to work on "Concerto for Triangle." Although it was only the first day for this piece, the students were amazing sight readers! Check out how they sounded after only a few minutes:
- D Major Scale with tricky rhythmic patterns
- See how far you can get through "Concerto for Triangle!" We will try to run through the whole piece next week.
- Start to brainstorm a fun and challenging piece we can play as a 5th grade feature at the concert.
