FRIDAY! | March 9, 2012


great week everyone!!

2nd period shout out to the french horn section.  mainly alexandra martel.  she correctly identified tenuto ( It. teh-NOO-toh) Held, sustained.  The tenuto mark is an articulation used to show emphasis given to a note or chord.  according to THE FJH Classic Music Dictionary.

3rd period very satisfying rehearsal today.  we will record on monday.

4th period homework for monday – I-IV in C and F major.

  • write the bass notes first.
  • fill out the I chord in closed position (soprano on first line E for C major, A – first space – for F major) **for F major, place the bass on 4th line F in bass clef
  • hold over the tone that is common to both chords.
  • move the remaining voices by step to the nearest chord tone.  it may be upward or downward.
  • ENJOY!
  • check the afro-cuban songs under “resources”

6th period-tabla and steve smith info due on monday.  additionally, all scales – c major, f and g major.  one octave in both clefs.

8th here is the link to the video.  rough draft due on tuesday. “what is the current state of music today?”  respond to the video.  look up some information about the guy in the video and then look up one of the bands he talks about.

AND I HAVE DECIDED TO POST A VIDEO EVERYDAY!!  if you watch it, you will slowly be introduced to something or things you have never seen ever.  i will post three today.
