Well done everyone!
We are really starting to sound good together. If you are still have issues consistently making a sound on your instrument or reading the music, I promise you are not the only one! Do not be discouraged since we still have plenty of time and you will improve!
What we did:
EE Lines 1-14
Metronome markings for the pieces:
Jamaican Holiday 1: 108bpm, 2: 86bpm, 3: 112bpm
Jurassic park: 108bpm
This week we spent time on breathing and making sure that we are breathing in through our mouths (for winds players) and not constricting our air flow by tightening up or incorrect posture. feel free to download a metronome app (i use metronome beats made by stonekick) or use an online one if you do not wish to purchase one
Remember to watch the conductor because I can stop and hold any note I wish!
MakeMusic– this is a multiproduct company, including smartmusic that can help you to practice out of the book and learn pieces (you do have to pay for this and it is not mandatory). I do not have a login key, so you can use classic smartmusic. I looked for a cellphone app and I couldn’t find one that was this program, but there is apparently one for ipad. Here is the website: https://www.smartmusic.com/
