7th grade students have been working on their pieces for the May Concert. They are working on an arrangement of "Any Way You Want It", "Old Joe Clark", and a new piece titled "The Butterfly". These pieces practice playing notes in the D major and G major scales, as well as working on the C major scale. Students work on blending their sounds, playing with dynamics, using Pizzacato and Arco bowings, sluring and tieing notes together, as well as playing different articulations (staccato and legato).
Students in 7th grade should be practicing:
"Any Way You Want It" (bowings, dynamics, rhythm)
