Rehearsals are starting to move faster and therefore, our expectations are higher and practicing at home is becoming more 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
Enjoy the excerpts you can play well, BUT be sure to practice your challenging excerpts MORE
THIS WEEK: 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)
