Assignment for the week of Monday, April 20th
Interview a parent or grandparent about their musical backgrounds and interests.
1 What is their favorite song right now and why?
2. What instruments do they play?
3. Who are their favorite artists?
Also, If you have you instrument at home please keep practicing. Make sure that you warm up the same way we do in class. If you are in 6th or 7th grade I would start with number 14 in the book and work your way through the book including lines we did and did not play in class. If you are in 8th grade or High School it would be a good idea to run through the music you will play next fall and any other material you may have. Working on new scales and arpeggios will improve your playing alot. If you need help with something please let me know!
