Now that concert week is over, it's time to get back into GROUPS!!!! Here's the plan.
VC Theory: We will have an intro to dictation and then spend some time reviewing for your final.
RC3 & RC4 Piano: Your piano final will be performing the piece of repertoire that you chose before the February break. You will have 6 class days to get it perfected before your in-class finals the week of 5/15. As you are ready, you will be allowed to work on your Garageband arrangement. Those students whose pieces are outstanding will have the opportunity to play for piano recitals in 5th period, also the week of 5/15.
Loewe Theory: This week we have a three day crash course over function of triads, 7th chords, and chord reduction and analysis. They will be extremely full days, so if you miss a day, please see me to receive the information and/or make up the classwork.
Looking ahead for Chamber--starting next week seniors will have your college prep unit. Those of you who are going into music or musical theater in college, please make sure that you bring a copy of your school's music theory placement exam. Those of you going into college for something other than music will have a final research project to wrap up your understanding of theory in "real world" music. More details to come in class.
