This project is for every class to participate in! I've selected a piece of music where parts can be played from beginner level students to Advanced, and I think you will enjoy it. Here is how the project works -
**New info as of 5/13 - New due date is 5/20. Also, try bringing the recording volume down on your microphone in your device to near 30%. This will help me as I combine all recordings. Thanks! - Mr. C
Find your part below and print it to start working on it. Very soon, Mr. Colo'n hopes to have instructional recordings posted here for you to learn your part, especially for Beginner and Intermediate class students. When you can get to the place where you can play through the entire piece on your own, start playing it with a metronome then with the recording link below.
Once that is done, be ready to submit your recording, preferably a video that has your face in it as you play. Make sure you are playing along with the Youtube recording link playing softly behind you. Please submit your video on FLIPGRID, not on Teams. Here is where you record your FNO recording - flipgrid.com/8880be32 Important recording info - when recording, please be at least 4 feet away from your recording device. This will help with sound quality. You'll still have time to start playing within the first 4 measures of the piece. Please submit yours by May 20th so that Mr. C can combine all recordings on time.
When you are practicing without the Youtube recording, work with a metronome when ready. Start at a slow tempo (near 60 BPM), then your goal is to play with metronome at 108 BPM = quarter note. This is the tempo of the Youtube recording and will allow you to perform with everyone else in the Hobbs Band program, virtually. :) When recording yourself, if your part plays in the first measure, do not play the first 4 measures. Let those 4 measures establish your tempo, then come in with the Youtube recording at the 3rd measure, always making sure not to play too loud which would cause you to get off tempo with your Youtube recording behind you.
Here is your Youtube recording for practice and performance, once your individual part is ready -
This is the NEW recording with 12 counts of metronome that starts it. I apologize for those who have already submitted, but I am learning every hour I spend on this project. Please make a new one using this recording if you previously recorded on Flipgrid. Important info: 1. Use only this new recording in background now. 2. Bring your internal microphone in your device down to 30% intake. 3. Stand about 4 ft away from your recording device. 4. Play your instrument no louder than medium volume.
Your individual parts to print and practice with are below. Pay special attention to the key signature for your instrument! Some of you have one flat, everything else is natural (E, and A nat.); Some have one sharp, with everything else natural (B nat.); Some have 2 sharps with everything else natural. Some have all naturals. Check out your key signature before you start working the piece.
The following clarinet part is for any clarinet needing an easier part, especially any Beginner or Intermediate student. You may try the Clar1 part above if you are up for a challenge.
