WEEKLY CALL-IN ASSIGNMENTS

Your band homework is to practice 20 minutes, 4 days per week. On one of those days, you need to call 314.594.7329, state your name and instrument and play the assignment below.

Call-Ins are due every Friday and usually require you to use a metronome. I recommend that you purchase the app Tonal Energy ($4) and use it as a tuner and metronome. Any of the free downloadable metronome apps are fine as well. The website www.metronomeonline.com or typing “metronome” into google will also give you a metronome.

#2. Due Friday, August 30th: Mini Bluebook, page 48, first 6 lines - Count lines 1&5, then play them. Count lines 9&13, then play them. Count lines 17&21, then play them. Metronome marking = 70. You must use a metronome for credit.
