Just a few notes from today's group class, a "parent homework" reminder, plus a schedule change announcement.
1) This week's group class homework is thinking up new words to Twinkle Rhythm C ("Dance on the floor, right now!")
Hint: There are 6 syllables. The first and fourth syllable are slower, the 2nd, 3rd, 5th & 6th syllables are spoken faster. Listen to your recording of Twinkle Variation C and see if you can think of words which fit this rhythm!
P.s. If you didn't have new words for Variation B ("Quiet, shh, please!), be prepared to share words for both rhythms next group class! Feel free to email me if you're having trouble.
2) Parents, please go online to suzukiassociation.org, login (create a username if you need to), and look around for a thread to post in. Please email me when you've made your post! It doesn't have to be a long one!
P.S. You might be able to find ideas for new words to the twinkle rhythms on the SAA discussion forums, and you can post your own new ideas! ;-)
3) SCHEDULE CHANGE ANNOUNCEMENT: Mrs. Wie and I are working on scheduling an info session for prospective new families who are interested in Suzuki violin at St. Margaret's. We would like to hold our info session right before a group class and push the group class time 15 minutes later (to start at 3:30) on that particular day. The date we are thinking of is March 25th.
We would plan to hold group class onstage in the theater that day and invite parents who attended the info session to observe part of our group class on that date. This will also give us a chance to practice sharing music in front of an audience!
