Special Listening Assignment

This assignment is for all students.

Each week, please pick one piece from the repertoire list (make sure you have the right instrument). Listen to that same piece three different times during the week, with three different performers. Then write a review (preferably in a notebook) discussing the things you heard, things you liked or didn't like, things you noticed about the performers, differences between performers, etc. 

Please note: I would still like my younger students to do this. Have them describe what they hear - loud, soft, short, long, storylines, emotions, moods, etc.
