JO - Rehearsal Notes (1-19-19)

Parents:  We started the semester with a productive rehearsal.  As a group, we sight read the music very well and were actually able to rehearse a little!  The students sounded better as the rehearsal went on! Today made for a solid start to the second semester.

Students:  Congratulations on a very good reading of the JO music!  We look forward to working with you this semester!

At the rehearsal this coming Saturday, we will be having our first sectional. To prepare for that, please work on the following pieces: 

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

Rosamunde Overture

Practice small sections at a time slowly to get ready for your sectional.  Do not try to get through the entire piece immediately.

The next piece to start working on should be Cumberland Cross.

When you arrive early for rehearsal (by 8:45), be sure to warm up and tune up on your own.

Also, be sure to have your instrument, music, pencil, and a tuner (if you own one).

We look forward to seeing you next week!

Mrs. Robertson and Mr. Austell
