String Update and Assignment

Fourth Graders
4A:  I am so proud of all of you!  Today we reviewed the strings and how to properly hold the bow, and then we learned the D scale.  Next, we skipped quite a few pages in the book (you are awesome!) and played Song for Christine.  Next week we will get two songs for our Winter Concert!


  • D Major Scale
  • Song for Christine
  • Natalie's Rose
  • Dreidel (optional)
4 B/C:  Today we reviewed the first two lines of Concerto for Triangle.  Try to get back into the practicing habit!  Even if that means only practicing for 5 or 10 minutes until you work your way back up.  We also listened to Jazzy Old Saint Nicholas.

  • D Major Scale
  • Concerto for Triangle - up to measure 25
  • Start Jazzy Old Saint Nick
Fifth Graders
5A/B:  Today we played through all of Concerto for Triangle, and worked on the dynamics and articulations.  Then, we started to look at Jazzy Old Saint Nick

  • D Major Scale - challenging rhythms!
  • Concerto for Triangle
  • Jazzy Old Saint Nick
Next week is Columbus Day, and there will be no school.  Enjoy the long weekend! :)
