Create a short two measure Rhythm Composition in 4/4 time. Make sure to include the following:
After you complete your bell ringer, practice your songs and be ready to grade them on Monday.
On Monday, I will give you your final assignments and final exam if you are not exempt.
Rhythm Performance Time! Write in the counts and circles for the following rhythm. Practice clapping the rhythm while saying the counts (you can either say the subdivision or say the counts that the note begins on)
I will come around and grade and check in with your progress on your performance pieces.
Practice Log and Efficiency
When you sit dow to practice today you need to come up with a short term goal (i.e. 4 measures if its a brand new song, played on both hands at a steady tempo, etc)
After that goal is created, you need to consider the steps that it will take for you to achieve that goal (i.e. perform with no rhythm, then add rhythm once the mechanics are figured out, etc)
You need to be as descriptive ass possible. When filling out your logs you MUST write more than one or two words. I want sentences (yes, plural, sentanceS)
