Tass Week Two – AMU – instrumental

Here’s what we did:

  • Warmup – scales , Bb, Eb, F, Ab – scale in fourths
  • Worked the scale in a row- timing, and accuracy – develop as a group
  • Balance builder #10
  • NEW: Articulation Studies #118 – look through silently 30 sec, play through 30 sec. then play as a group.
  • Isolate ONE bar, and play it over and over again.
  • 20 min Jazz sectional in the hall – went well

We acquired two co-op students in our class, one is learning a second instrument (trombone) and helping Karn.  The other is helping others and taking up conducting.

Learning goals for today:

  •  increase fluency on scales
  • pattern recognition in new pieces and sight reading
  • Introduction of playing piece
  • rehearse either jazz pieces or #118
