Second Quarter Goals
Students will learn to perform new notes: perform line #35 Twinkling Stars to passoff
Students will learn to read new rhythms (eighth notes): perform line #53 Pieces of Eight to passoff
Students will learn to perform musical phrases using their breathing skills: choose one line (36A, 37,38, or 39) to perform and passoff
Students will learn the technique of slurring (not tonguing certain notes): perform line #64 with slurs to passoff; ***this line can also be performed as a round for a Level 6 passoff
Students will learn to perform music both loud and soft (dynamics): perform line #54 to passoff
As students are preparing these lines, they should experience an improvement in their sound (tone), become more comfortable with reading the notes and rhythms, and improve their overall musicianship.
