The hard parts are almost over.

February 17, 2015

We sure ploughed through a lot of tough music yesterday.  I know it seems really difficult right now but in about 2 weeks, the really hard parts will all have been mastered and the rest is easy and will go together quickly.  Thanks so much for your attention and focus.  I am really excited about our April concert.  It is going to be the best yet. 

 

Here's a summary of what we worked on yesterday and an idea of what is to come.

1.  Happy - review first and second verses - keep listening to the recording.  There are  only15 bars of notes left to learn.  Everything else is a repetition of the first section  --- we'll have lots of time to get the 'groove on'.

 

2.  Moonlight Serenade - measures 173 to 180 are really tricky - (it's almost as hard as the harmonies in Colours last year).  It might take two or three rehearsals to learn these 7 bars but the good news is the notes for the rest is simiply measures 148 - 160 twice.

 

3.  Get Happy - review the notes in measure 38 - 41 - please listen to the recording of your own part.

Also please review the introduction by listening to your parts.  We have pages 9 and 10 left to learn.  The good news here - page 11 is composed of patterns repeated from the first 8 pages.

 

4.  The Lake Isle of Innisfree - we made real progress on this piece today.  Measures 1 - 39.  Next week we'll block out measures 70 - the end.  This is going to be a really beautiful piece of music about the beginning of April  ;-)

 

5.  That leaves 2 pieces of music Everything's coming up roses, and Everything is Beautiful.  The good news here - Everything is Beautiful is only 5 pages to learn (everything else is repetition).  Roses is coming along nicely, but it is probably the most work to get ready for the concert.

 

We already have Peace Like a River, Friends, Londonderry Air, California Dreamin, How Can I Keep From Singing. 

 

We've really accomplished a lot in such a short time.  Well done.  Keep singin'

See you all next week.
