Dear 5th Grade Families,
Here are the practice tasks for this upcoming week. Just a reminder, it is Lower Lab’s policy for students to practice 50 minutes a week. I recommend doing 10 minutes a day for five days a week to be consistent and for fast results.
Essential Elements #55 – 57 – We should be fluid at transitioning from one note to the next. This is a good review in case you have forgotten how to play certain notes on the D and A strings.
Essential Elements #71 – I suggest practicing with a metronome. Remember the tempo is Andante so I would not go any faster than 72 – 76 beats per minute. You can type in metronome 72 bpm on youtube and you will get a lot of options. Remember two eighth notes has to fit into one click.
Essential Elements #76 – Please be mindful about the rests. It is also a good idea to practice with a metronome. I would say to practice this at 80 beats per minute.
Essential Elements #88 – The goal is to be confident with our own playing that way we can play it in a round in multiple parts, possibly in four groups :). It sounds really satisfying to play a round in four groups, but we have to be confident with ourselves and know our own parts, so we can accomplish this.
