List of Goals for the week:

  • Bow Finger Exercise

  • D Major Scale

  • F Major Scale

  • Kreutzer with Bow Fingers

  • Intermezzo Measures 1-19


Summary

This week we reviewed the D Major scale and put the F Major scale into time. We added the bow fingers exercise to the first 8 notes of the Kreutzer Etude. We also worked on polishing the first 19 measures of the Intermezzo

Assignment for next week

Comfortably play F Major scale in time going into 5th position

Comfortably (and slowly!) play the first 8 notes of Kreutzer with bow finger exercise using only the fingers

Get comfortable with the notes and rhythms for the first 19 measures of the Intermezzo

How to Practice this at home

Warm up the 5th position notes of F major then slowly play the scale 3x

Practice the first 8 notes of the Kreutzer slowly with space in between each note using only bow fingers to move the bow 5x

Spend 10-15 minutes identifying and practicing trouble spots then read through the first 19 measures of Intermezzo 3x
