Impact statement: Helping Brandon prepare for his concert
Reflection: Brandon is in beginning orchestra and he wanted to improve some of his skills for the upcoming orchestra concert. And as his friend, I wanted to help him be prepared for his concert. I gave him some tips on how to better play his repertoire while we worked on emphasizing his crescendos and dynamics. I also made sure that he did the right bowing for all of his songs. We also separated some of the excerpts that he didn’t feel too confident on and worked on it until he was able to play it. Once I helped him improve the sections he needed help on, I introduced him to some new skills. I started teaching him some vibrato exercises so that he can practice on his own time.
