Practice: As our young musicians develop their instrumental skill, practice is essential to their progress. You can help stimulate their motivation to practice by allocating a quiet space and time into their routine with gentle but firm reminders! “Come on, it’s 5 o’clock, it’s time for you to practice now!”
Beginner Guitars are working of Yellow Submarine & Okey Kokey, advanced guitars are recapping EVERYTHING we’ve played with full chords and rhythmic strumming patterns.. You can find the repertoire on the Guitar Grooves tab of this blog.
Beginner Strings are practicing the posture sequence, the Ant Song, 1st finger placement on the strings and See The Little Monkey. Advanced strings are playing The William Tell, Spring , the Warm Up page as well as scales D major, G major, A major (C major for Cello & Viola).
Recorders are working on their Karate belts.
