Week 6 October 22,2019

Well done everyone! We have officially gotten to the end of clinics and now we start 2 hour band rehearsal.

What we did:

-staccato vs. Legato

-practice holding note for full length

-nutcracker: much of this piece is the same throughout. You need to concentrate on learning the first few bars and then the rest will fall into place since the piece is repetitive. This one should be nice and light so we sound like toy spldiers instead of elephants. The forte accents are indeed forte and accented (look for the conductor cue)

Maya: look at the conductor for tempo changes!! They change suddenly, but i will always show you a beat before. Make sure you carefully count rests to not get ahead

What we will do next week:

EE: 54, 55,

Abide with me last 16 bars

Maya the lost empire: coda

Nutcracker: 1-17

Music room (2hours with a break in between)
