Friday: rhythm practice, ensemble work
Tuesday:
Listening:
We did not get to our popular listening piece last week so the analysis will be done on Monday of this week.
Wednesday:
Skill Practice:
Guitar chords with folksongs. Students will rehearse Battle of Shiloh, He's Got the Whole World and Drunken Sailor this week.
We will also do drumming practice of rhythms and review and practice how to do improvisation.
Piano skills this week will focus on playing simple recognizable melodies. We will use all 6 keyboards
Thursday:
Ensemble Work: The students are making good progress now. Each student has determined his/her role in the group, and last week they moved past rehearsing individually to rehearsing together. This week they will continue getting each part strong, keeping the beat steady and everyone together.
