  • Week of December 4-8th
    Monday
    Congratulations on completing your solo evaluations!  Kudos to Grade 12s for checklisting a "one last time" item! :)

    Time to work on: Solo survey (so long as the internet co-operate with my uploading process!!!!!!! gr!!!) *Please bring ear buds so you can listen to your pieces without disturbing others
    If we can't work on the survey- I would like you to complete a letter to your grade 9 secret penpal person and write out their etude via noteflight.  Reminder that this letter is for marks.  The question they posed to you was what your practice routine looks like, and any advice on how to improve theirs.  You will be graded on your etude you write for them as well.  (How appropriate it is in addressing their problem).

    Wednesday
    Class will be in the auditorium today.  We will work on ensemble rep

    Thursday
    *You are expected to be ready to tune and warm up at 6:45pm.  I will commence warm up at 7:15. Tuxes and dresses are mandatory.
    *Please remember to bring your food item

    Friday
    No ensemble rehearsal in the morning!
    Continue working on solo survey and/or letters.  Letters and etude are expected by the end of this period.
    *You are expected to be ready to tune and warm up at 7pm.  I will commence warm up at 7:15. Tuxes and dresses are mandatory.
    *Please remember to bring your food item

    Solo Evaluation with Liko.  Good luck!
    (Grade 11s will go on Friday) . During the Thursday Class period - I would like you to get started on analyzing your solo pieces.  Make sure you have a copy of your music so that you can highlight your part to do a proper analysis.  Think about themes, motifs, melody vs harmony, dynamic contrasts etc. 
    *please ensure that someone is on standby at all times.  No switching orders.  Music must be presented or we cannot grade you.
