Dear Musicianship 3 Students,
Here is our first practice video for 2015! As I say in the video, reading and writing triplets is pretty easy to understand - It's just 3 even sounds on a beat. However, performing them smoothly is a whole different matter. Musicians of the highest order find switching between 2 even sounds (eighth notes) and 3 even sounds (triplets) extremely challenging, which is why we practice this so much in class.
Please take a moment to watch this video after your class this week and then write the answers on a blank sheet of paper to turn in next week.
If you did not already receive your part for ensemble, I have attached a copy of Greensleeves. Violinists may play the melody, Guitarists should learn to play the melody or the chords and Pianists should learn both melody and the piano part.
