I hope that your break has been relaxing and full of love.
We are going to be back on Monday ready to tackle this semester with full force. Please make sure that your students are getting reacquainted with their instruments before Monday.
WE WILL PLAY ON MONDAY. ALL STUDENTS NEED THEIR INSTRUMENTS.
Students: practice your three embouchure steps, and play from line one in your book as far as you can go. This will be a great way to get your brain going again. Never be scared to finger and name to get reacquainted with the notes.
use your scale sheet and find a scale (a line of letters) to learn. The scales are read from left to right and will tell you the note names to use. Your fingering chart in the back of the book will explain your fingerings for any new notes.
I cannot wait to see the students and Monday and pass out jackets for anyone who ordered them.
Enjoy the rest of your break!
