Week of 12/4/17

Happy Concert Week, everyone! Due to concert prep, we will not have groups this week. Please visit Dr. Woolf's blog for details on rehearsal schedules, run orders, and attire and expectations for the concert.

RC3: If you have not yet finished your scales/cadences, you may continue to submit videos for partial credit.

Week of 11/27/17

Welcome back! Hope y'all enjoyed your Thanksgiving break and got lots of rest. :) We're primarily focusing on concert repertoire this week since your holiday concert is two weeks away (Dec. 8th). However, RC3 will have one group rotation in order to wrap up those scales, which are due on this Friday, Dec. 1st. PLEASE send me videos outside of class if you want to be able to finish this up on time, especially if you still have 3 or more scales/cadences to go. After December 1st, you will only get half credit for each Major key.
