Ensemble Work

Practice: in the circle, we tried out the body orchestra again. I'm hearing improvement in how well we're playing together. I suspect this is because everyone is listening more closely.

Classwork: Now that instruments are finished, the bands are practicing from their rhythm grids and starting to develop their graphic scores. We talked a bit about what needs to be featured on a graphic score: rhythm, pitch, dynamics, etc. When these are done, they'll look a bit like our listening maps - general overviews of the different parts of the music.

Tomorrow: more practice and work on graphic scores to prepare for performance Friday
