JO - Rehearsal Notes (1-26-19)

Parents:  We had our first sectional of the semester today. As always, the work in sectionals isolates specifics in the music that each student must be sure to practice.

Students:  Be sure to practice everything that was brought to your attention in sectionals today on The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Rosamunde Overture! In addition, prepare Cumberland Cross for next week’s sectional and begin to become familiar with Londonderry Air.

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


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).

If you would like extra help on your music, Mrs. Robertson and Mr. Austell are available starting at 8:15.

We look forward to seeing you next week!

Mr. Austell and Mrs. Robertson
