ATTENTION PA STUDENTS:

AND.......

RC4
Good work, last week! The journey to 'fine tune' your aural acuity to differentiate root, first, and second position triads continues this week. We'll practice picking out individual pitches within triadic inversions. It will be fun, trust me.

Mr. Adams' Drama Classes (1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th periods)
We have finished up our search for appropriate, 16-bar song cuts for those of you interested in pursuing the Musical Theatre track in Drama, this semester. You will present them for the class and Mr. Adams for coaching.

Class of 2017
I will be in touch with each of you. I want to be sure that you have accompaniment tracks for each of your audition songs for the Chicago UNIFIEDS. I will do my best to get them done as quickly as I can; there are a lot of you AND so MANY song cuts to play, record and convert. Have patience. And, last, we will continue our Senior Soiree song coaching, too.

How accurately can you identify triadic inversions? You will spend a little time dictating and notating examples that you hear.
