Mackenzie wins speed reading!

Last week’s challenge was speed reading and the results were very close. Many students were under 30 seconds with Forrest, Jason and Mackenzie under 20 seconds. Mackenzie was 13 seconds and 59/100 beating Jason who had 13 seconds and 94/100! Great job students. (The bass clef notes slowed some down.)

Forrest is quickest!

Last week we worked on dynamics and articulation by putting together eight Christmas trees. The tree in the center illustrates “pianissimo” for the trunk, the English words “very soft” for the middle and the star at the top is the symbol “pp”. Forrest was the fastest at putting them all together in 20 seconds, beating Della by one second! He can also play pieces fast and lively!
