Cello Beginner II: Week #3
List of Goals for the week:
Warm Up: Long tones, bow distribution, Pentascale
Scale: C, D, G, slurred
Paragraph summary of what was covered in class
We reviewed all technique so far. We learned to pluck (pizz.) the beginning of “Blowin in the wind”, up to letter B.
Assignment for next week
Be prepared to play through letter B at a comfortable walking tempo (around 75-80 bpm).
How to Practice this at home
Set the metronome to a pace that is fairly comfortable, then gradually increase the speed. If there are particular notes or spots you get stuck and fall behind the beat, focus around those and/or slow the metronome down.
