Week of 11/14/16

5 days till Thanksgiving break! That's something for which to be grateful!

Here's the plan for groups this week:

VC: Intro to tetrachords and scales. We will be back in your textbook, so make sure that you bring it!

RC3: Scales and cadences are due by Friday. Don't forget that you can video them to send to me--just make sure that I can see your fingerings.

RC4: Your piano final (repertoire or excerpt) will happen this week.

CC: Intro to triads.

Phoenix: Wrapping up research and preparing your presentations.
