Good morning families,
It has been a busy start back with students preparing for festivals and exams. Best of luck to all students writing - I hope you are successful in your endeavours!
In preparation for our upcoming festival (dates posted below) we have booked clinics for the first week back in February. Students are asked to keep up a consistent practice schedule throughout the break so that we can achieve our ensemble goals once we return.
Practice can be playing through short excerpts of music, using air and fingers to 'play' through music, counting rhythms, singing through parts, annotating your music, listening to different recordings, playing along to recordings, etc.
