E-Flat Chromatic Scale Playing test
Due Friday, September 30 (Take 1) and Take 2 Due on Thursday, October 6
Record yourself by Video (no garage band please) and upload your video to Google Classroom. Remember that I need to see you playing your instrument in the video - I need to see embouchures, hands, mallets, strings, etc. Thank you! :)
* Wind and string instruments:
Perform the E-flat chromatic scale up and down, twice, back to back in one exercise/ recording.
1st time all tongued
2nd time all slurred (except legato for strings and trombones)
Tempo: Quarter note = 96-120
1st time: in sixteenth notes (in paradiddles alternating notes)
E-flat, E, F, F#, G, G#, A, B-flat
L R L L R L R R
2nd time: one group of four sixteenth notes for each paradiddle group

* Students will all receive feedback after their 1st Take, and then will re-record and be given a mark after their 2nd take. Marks will be a combination of the two takes, taking in to consideration the level of improvement between takes.
* Remember that tests not submitted by the due date will receive a mark of Zero until the test is completed and has been able to be assessed. Students can do a re-test if they wish to get a higher mark. Re-tests will be accepted up until two weeks before the end of each term.
Good luck! Happy practicing.

There is a free hands on workshop happening tonight that I could not remind the students about today since I was ill.
Please consider going to this wonderful FREE band workshop tonight from 7-10:30pm with the Cochrane Music Society. A couple of our graduates from last year play in the ensemble, and I know it will be a fun workshop. Dr. Dale Lonis is one of my favourite conductors and music educators and we are so lucky to have the opportunity to send our students for free!! Bring your instruments and be ready to sight read along with them :)
Location: Bow Valley High School
** Bring your instruments
