Text me results you’re proud of for each of these exercises!
Work on assignments written in Practice Journal, and log your practice time each day you play piano.
Don’t forget to practice your C major scale, and the chords for C major, C minor, D major and D minor. Think about the note names you’d play in each chord. Ex: C minor is C Eb (E flat) G
Bring a tote bag with 3-ring binder with matte sheet protectors to your next lesson, along with your books and journal.
Have a parent sign practice journal at the end of the week.
Have fun! 🙂
I am so impressed with Cambel’s progress! He has done an amazing job in getting himself reacquainted with note value, rhythms, and our terminology.
Keyboard note reading is almost perfectly fluent, the highest score possible with lightning-fast reflex is 32 keys in one minute, and right now he’s at 25 with 100% accuracy.
We are currently refining our sight-recognition of note names for the our bass (11 notes) and treble clef (10 notes) separately, and he’s doing really well!
His abilities with our duet pieces are by far the best I’ve had with any student! He does an amazing job at being able to keep his rhythm independently of what I’m playing, which can be incredibly difficult for a lot of people.
We’ve just started work in more advanced theory, and beginning composition, and will be starting our Popular Music book next week!
