JO - Rehearsal Notes (10-20-18) JO Students and Parents:
We appreciate how the members of the Junior Orchestra are arriving in time to warmup and tune up on their own so we can start promptly at 9:00!Rehearsals continue to move faster and therefore, our expectations continue to be high for this year’s Junior Orchestra.
There are ONLY four rehearsals between now and the school tour
As always, practice at home is very important. Between JO rehearsals, each member should be practicing his or her JO music at least four times for at least 20 minutes per time. If at all possible, practice with a metronome!
Here are the recommended practice tempos (for now):
Freedom Finale Majestic: mm=88, Slightly faster: mm=96
Barber of Seville Allegro vivo: mm=136, Coda: mm=144
Polar Express Beginning: mm=108
Measure 25: mm=78
Measure 51: mm=144
Measure 84: mm=108
Measure 120: mm=88
Measure 135: mm=136
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)
