another dreadfully boring blog about camp!

June 25, 2007 at 12:23 AM

Oh, it's another exciting day at camp. My eyes do tend to glaze over after a few hours of lectures(we do lots more observing tomorrow), and I don't always agree with everything, but here is what we accomplished today.

Day 2 of Suzuki Book 1 training-Today we did lots of "my-turn, your turn" activities. We discussed the foot chart and first lesson activities for a 4 yr old. We also discussed how to help students find a good position for their violin and not skipping the step of holding the violin w no hands
Some first "songs"-plucking the E & A for the "pop" in Pop Goes the Weasel. I learned a new song: Eek, eek, eek,all the little ants, ants, ants, they are going down, down, down, way into the ground, ground, ground. We also tried some pre-left hand work which is designed to strenghten hand muscles and which leads to development of a descending A major scale.

And we even played our Twinkle Variations (ooh-ahh). And to add to the excitement, I created folders on my computer for all of my lesson plans for the school year. Gotta get it done though. Such an exciting life!!!

I don't think your blogs are boring. I am not a Suzuki teacher, and I have enjoyed reading about what The Others are doing...Thanks!
