Orchestra Academy Review and Challenge –3/4/19

Hi everyone!

I have been posting regularly on our social media pages, but have been neglecting to post here! I apologize for that. Below are my review videos for this week:

Beginning Review:

Intermediate Review:

For your challenge this week, I have recorded myself playing Impulse on each of the instruments. Both orchestras will be performing this piece at the concert, so this can be good practice for everyone.

Violin:

Viola:

Cello:

Bass:

And just for fun, here is a video of all 4 at the same time!

If you get good at playing your part by itself, try playing it with the video of all 4 parts. That way you will know how it will sound with the whole orchestra.

Happy practicing everyone!
