Essential Elements: line 9 to work on cutoffs and dynamics. We played this note pp and ff. 97 trombone rag. 119, 121, 123 for the jumps. Remember to work on low notes to get good high notes!
Visions of Arajuez: We did a Marathon on this one. Great work everyone! First, sections asked for the cues that they would like. Remember that this is a latin piece, so it will not feel like a 3/4 Waltz. We got to 43. We worked on m. 34 to get our timing together as an ensemble. We also did the transitions between section entries up to 41. Remember at 41 there is a conversation between the low brass and the flutes/alto saxes.
24 or 6 to 4: We worked on the opening up to m. 17. Clapped m.14 in sections, so we could hear each part.
Next Week Plan:
EE: 119, 121, 123, 126,128
We will have sectionals next week, but it will be Woodwinds, Brass, and Percussion.
We will be looking at each of the pieces, so please pick out the difficult sections and practice them. Start slowly (especially practice with a metronome) and then get faster.
