Lesson # 9

Interesting Image

This is a test. Please respond to this email as soon as you read it. I am trying to gauge the effectiveness of sharing information and announcements via Remind/blog posts. With end of year stuff and registration going on, I want to find my most effective way of reaching all my parents.

Now, some quick things to mark on your calendars:

  • We will not have class on April 8/9 because of Spring Break. I hope you have something amazing planned!
  • Lesson 15 will be held on April 29/30, and parents attend.
  • On Friday, May 15th at Flint Hill Baptist Church in Fort Mill (269 Flint Hill Rd, Fort Mill, SC 29715) we will be having our Year End Recital. The recital starts at 6:00 pm.


Don't forget to post videos for Spirit Week, and get a chance to win awesome stuff! (If you didn't make a video during class, you can still post a video - just make sure you still use the hashtags when you post. All the details are in the email I sent earlier. Let me know if you have questions.

Bagatelle Bridges

This repertoire piece has all the elements that we've learned about in our puppet shows! It has an introduction, a CODA (special ending) and it has 2 BRIDGES. We will actually learn the theme in C Major and then we will get to show off our transposing skills to play it in F and G.


G Major Scale

This is the last of the major scales we will learn during our time in Let's Play Music. All of our scales have taught us finger technique and strength, but also allowed us to understand key signatures and scale compositions. Just as our Magic Keys Song will tell us, Do is G because the F# is a ti -- so don't forget to play that F# on ti!!!

Even Disney's Aristocats know how important it is to practice their scales (and arpeggios)!


Also, we have attached coloring pages for our Circus Puppet Show for fun!
