Jammin' In July
Don't forget- July is On Your Own Month!
Let’s have fun, make and accomplish musical goals and celebrate!
All students who accumulate a minimum of 20 points will earn
an invitation to an ice cream party! The more points you earn the more ice cream and toppings!
20 points- 2 scoops of ice cream + 1 topping
25 points- 3 scoops of ice cream + 1 topping
30 points- 3 scoops of ice cream + 2 toppings
35 points- 3 scoops of ice cream + 3 toppings
40 points- 4 scoops of ice cream + 4 toppings
*Play a MusicLearningCommunity.com Game- 2 points for each individual game
(Play games that are in your current level. I prefer you play games you
haven’t done yet if possible. This is a time to challenge yourself!
You must reach the target score to receive the 2 points.)
*Learn new pieces On Your Own- 3 points each piece
(Learning new pieces on your own isn’t simply sight-reading.
You want the pieces to be to a point where you can pass them off.)
*Complete a Project from one of your classes- 5 points each
Imagination is Key- Create a Sound Story, Practice 3 improvisation activities learned in class, Create a story to go along with a written piece you are learning.
Red, White and Blue Rocks- Play your Pentascales around the Circle of Fifth’s or Compose a Patriotic Anthem at home, memorize a patriotic anthem or piece.
Accompanying Basics- Accompany someone either singing or playing along with another instrument, try conducting and have someone follow you.
Keyboard Kids- Polish all the pieces in your book and share 3 with your teacher when you return.
Come up with your own musical project and share it with your teacher! (Give me a head’s up what you are planning on doing before you do it)
Make sure you print out the sheet to keep track of everything on the summer newsletter.
