Jazz Band Digital Learning Q4
Welcome to the 4th Quarter! I know that this is a little unorthodox, but we will continue to work on performance and instrument fundamentals. It is important to work on our music and scales. I will continue to post new little exercises to play, as well as a fun musical challenges.
ALL ASSIGNMENTS WILL BE AVAILABLE ON CANVAS. PLEASE LOG INTO YOUR CANVAS TO FIND ASSIGNMENTS.
Thursdays at 3:00, we will have “class” on Zoom. I will send out the link for you to join via email and remind. It is a free web service, so no need to sign up, but I will be sending out the invitation code for the meeting 15 minutes before class. Have your instruments handy, because I will ask for volunteers to demonstrate/show off what you have worked on over the break/week.
If you would like to have a small private lesson to get tips, feedback, or help on anything, please let me know, and I will schedule you in. I cannot do from 11-12 on Tuesday or Thursday, and 3:00-4:00 on Monday (Beginning) Wednesday (Jazz Class Time) and Friday (Symphonic). Give me the best time for you in order for you to get the help you need.
