Honors Requirements - 3rd Quarter
Honors students, I have provided a link to a list of the performances at U of M. It should be on the right side of the website. Please plan your performance attendance early. You are strongly encouraged to turn it in BEFORE the last week of the quarter. The last week of third quarter is PACKED.
Start working on your mixolydian modes NOW. It's a major scale with the 7th note lowered by a half step. You should still be practicing your major and melodic minor scales. They make excellent warm ups.
You will have to transcribe a 4 part hymn for string quartet this quarter. We will cover how to read each clef in class. If you would like to choose your own hymn, you may do so as long as you bring a hard copy to class.
Please plan your tutoring/private lesson time in advance of the end of the quarter. Making your plans for this within the next week or two would be a good idea.
As I alluded to earlier in this post, the last week of the quarter is packed. We have the chamber music concert that Tuesday and concert festival that Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday. Learn your music ASAP so that you don't have to panic near the end. I will get the rest of your music to you after I order the new pieces this week.
