Spring ’16 Group Class Assignments

It was great to see all of you in group class last night!  If you weren’t able to join us, we hope to see you in upcoming weeks.

Also, last night Kirby and I mentioned a talk by Itzhak Perlman in which he talks about some principles of practicing.  We wanted each student to watch this video before group class next week, and be prepared to share their thoughts about it.  Efficient practicing at home and in group will be key to a great Spring Festival this semester!  Here’s the video:

See you in group next week!
