Hello fifth graders! It was great to play Combo Quartet in four parts in class! Keep working on it and perfecting the timing and tuning so it will sound great for our performances. The videos are for Can Can, If You Can Can (page 31, no.150). Practice it the way we learned it in class, adding a new part each time.
Here we are in week 10! There are 7 lessons left before our concert on January 25th...! This week we worked on saying different words to help use the bow correctly for notes of different lengths. Watch the video and practice the exercises, then work on Combo Quartet on page 31 (one of the pieces we'll play in our performances). We looked at the A, B and D parts in class - if you fancy a challenge, try the C part!
