JO - Rehearsal Notes (1-21-17)

JO Students and Parents:            

We will be having sectionals again next week! Now that we are more familiar with the pieces listed below, it’s time to work on them in GREATER DETAIL.  In order to prepare for that, be sure to concentrate your practice on these pieces in preparation for the sectionals:

Aragonaise from “Carmen           quarter note = 132

Symphony No. 36, The “Linz”     quarter note = 124

Dance of the Hours                       quarter note = 112 (beginning)

                                                        quarter note = 120 (Allegro Vivace)


The tempos listed above are practice tempos. Be sure to learn notes, rhythms, bowings and articulations of these pieces at these tempos (slower if needed to insure accuracy)! We will increase tempos later when we are ready.

As Always:          Be sure to arrive at the AYS Building by 8:45

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

Mrs. Robertson and Mr. Austell
