Groups Start Now!!!

That's right, piano/theory/musicianship groups start this week! Here's the plan for mine:

VC Theory: We'll be beginning a unit on reading music. We'll start with rhythmic values and terms.

RC3 Piano: We'll make sure that you know how to play your own starting pitch and triad for sight-reading purposes.

RC4 and CC Squirrels Theory: We'll have a BRIEF key signature and interval review.

CC Phoenix and Chipmunks Theory: We'll have a quick review over what you learned last year about triads and seventh chords.

Please be sure that you have your journals for groups. Looking forward to class this week!
