This was a straightforward ear-training-type session.

  • We got into treble clef level three in Level Up
  • We sang a few melodies from page one.
  • We read some the 3/4 rhythms from part C of our rhythms packet.
  • We did a couple dictation exercises.

No new homework. Summary of all current homework is as follows:

Homework #3: Piano Notes, Whole Steps, and Half Steps

This worksheet quizzes you about the notes on the piano, and it asks you to count out two small distances (half steps vs. whole steps).

Due date is Fri, Jan 26.

Homework #4: Major Scales (w/ the WWHWWWH Method)

Worksheet #4 asks you to spell a bunch of major scales in several different ways (by drawing on a piano, just writing the letters, or notating it on the staff.) The WWHWWWH method is covered on pp. 26-27 of our theory text.

Due date for this one is Tues, Jan 30.
