String Update and Assignment

Fourth Graders
4A, 4B, 4C:  Today we played our D scale in a round with the rhythm "du du-de," then rehearsed Jingle Bells and Autumn Rhumba.  The students came up with silly phrases to help them remember the rhythm patterns.  

Assignment for 4th graders:
  • Practice Jingle Bells, focusing on smooth bowing!
  • Salamander Samba 
  • Autumn Rhumba
  • D Scale (up/ascending AND down/descending)

Fifth Graders
5A and 5B:  Today the 5th grade violinists spent time working on a VERY tricky part of Saint Nick's Canon on the Housetop.  We worked out the fingerings for the E string notes, including G natural...low 2!  The cellos and violas rehearsed Dreidl Adventure.

Assignment for 5th graders:
  • Dreidl Adventure
  • Autumn Rhumba
  • Saint Nick's Canon on the Housetop

Song Recordings:  These can help you practice!!
