(Ricardo ) All of our orchestra students will play DADEGAD arranged by Mr. Wyler

Advanced, Beginning, Intermediate, All Together.

Advanced, Beginning, Intermediate, All Together.

(Abiageal )  Please give everyone another round of applause.  The beginning orchestra students are getting into place.
(Evan) Dr Suzuki created the Suzuki Method many years ago in Japan.  Here is a short clip of him speaking with an interpreter about music ability.

Beginning Orchestra

( Sarah) The Beginning Orchestra will warm up using the Suzuki big bow method by playing DADEGAD.
(Jacob ) This song is quite useful to help students get a loud and high quality sound.  Big bows are essential to the Suzuki Method.
(Aubrey ) Lightly Row is the 2nd song in the Suzuki Method book 1.  It is a popular song to help students set their fingers on the finger board while also using big bows.
(Tre'ston ) Good posture and accurately holding the bow helps get an extension for the wrist to help get that "big sound" that Dr. Suzuki expects.
(Daisy ) There are 10 Suzuki Books.  Today we will play from book 1.
(Citlali ) Dr. Suzuki composed this next song to create a difficult song that helps students concentrate and perform at a high level using short bow technique.
(Daisy ) The Beginning Orchestra is going to play this first at a slow pace while bouncing their bows to create a very short sound.

#9 Perpetual Motion

(Nitzia ) Now we are going to attempt the fast version of this song usually associated with the Advanced Orchestra.
(Kimiko ) Not everyone will attempt this song at this speed tonight and will stand at attention holding their violin in "concert position".  This will be the last song of the Beginning Orchestra for now.
(Joanna ) Let's give the Beginning Orchestra another round of applause.  One of the 4th grader beginning violin students is now playing in Advanced Orchestra tonight.  Let's give Sarah round of applause.
(Tahir ) The Intermediate Orchestra will begin by warming up with Mr. Wyler's arrangement of DADEGAD in the "Carpenters Style".

Intermediate Orchestra

( Demonte) The Intermediate Orchestra is also going to play "Lightly Row".
(Melanie ) This is a fundamental song in the Suzuki Method.  It helps students get a good sound while also placing their fingers in the right spot on the finger board.
(Demonte ) Playing the violin helps encourage students to listen to what they are playing instead of just pushing fingers down on the fingerboard.
(Melanie ) The violin training is also very important for students to develop a good ear training for singing the right notes for our programs and plays.
(Natalie ) The Intermediate Orchestra will perform the slow version of "Perpetual Motion".
(Giovani ) This is #9 in the Suzuki Book.  The students are going to bounce their bows to get a very short sound.

#9 Perpetual Motion

(Christian ) Some of the students will stand at attention at "Concert Position" while the other students perform this difficult song at a faster speed.
(Amare ) Let's give the Intermediate Orchestra another round of applause.
(Margarita ) Here is another video clip of Dr. Suzuki explaining how his method can help students.
(Amare ) He is convinced that musical development in the primary grades is beneficial to students in their future.
