Lesson Assignments: There is no written assignment for the week of March 13. Students are to be practicing the Pyramid concert music almost every night so that they are well prepared for our performance at Beville M.S.
Students are expected to be able to fluently read the D string notes at this time and by the end of April the A string notes.
