Day 38 - Gemini Jr. High
Wednesday, October 11, 2013
The last of the morning playing tests were heard this morning. The range of ability is astounding. There are students that come in and play the excerpts perfectly and others that struggle to play more than a few correct notes. I'd like to create some simplified parts for students that are seriously struggling, but I only have four more days at the school. We played through the solo section of my blues arrangement in concert orchestra, and after finishing up the playing tests in sinfonia, I led them through a little bit of Feliz Navidad. In the afternoon, we travelled to Apollo and had three great lessons with upper string groups. Looking forward to a nice three day weekend!
