Week of 1/16/18

Hope everybody enjoyed the three-day weekend! Here's the plan for groups this week (assuming no snow days). Please visit Dr. Woolf's blog for details on our overall schedule.

VC Theory: We have to finish up the group rotation from last week, so those of you who have not yet had a half step/whole step/enharmonics review will get that this week. Quiz on Friday!

RC3 Piano: Continuing to choose/begin learning your new repertoire, and/or finish up Major scales and cadences if you have not yet done that.

RC4 Theory: Seventh chords! You'll be applying your knowledge of the inversion, quality, and function of seventh chords to identify and construct seventh chords using Roman Numerals and Figured Bass.

Welcome back, and hope you enjoyed your extra day off! Here is the plan for theory and piano groups for this week. Please visit Dr. Woolf's blog for detailed schedules for the week.

VC Theory: Brief review, then quiz over half steps, whole steps, and enharmonics.

RC3 Piano: Choosing new repertoire! However, if you did not finish your Major scales and cadences last semester, you must finish them before moving on to repertoire.

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.

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.
