Sinfonietta: Reh Notes, Plan for 9/23
September 16, 2017
What we did:
Saint-Saens, Bacchanale: worked from beginning to m. 105
Bernstein, West Side Story: worked on Maria and I Feel Pretty
Plan for 9/23
1:00pm-2:00pm: Bernstein: from  "One Hand, One Heart" to the end of piece
2:10pm-3:00pm: Bacchanale: m. 105 to end of piece
1. Don't forget to bring a pencil to rehearsal, and please use it!
2. Bacchanale: practice with a metronome please! Here's how:
a. Select a short passage (8 or 16 bars, for example). Start at a slow tempo (slow enough so you can play perfectly including notes, articulations, dynamics, etc).
b. Once you've mastered the passage on that tempo, increase the tempo by 5 clicks or so. Practice again.
c. Repeat step "b" until you get to the performance tempo (quarter note=108).
3. Bernstein: please make sure to listen to the videos on my previous post, so you become familiar with the songs.
See you Saturday!
