Today, we learnt about the 3-flat scale and did an exercise about the 4-flat and 5-flat scale and chords.
At first, we played songs we wanted and the class was noisy until Jonathan realized Edward can play Can Can. Then, Edward, Tristan and Jonathan played Can Can together, and Jennifer played along. Then, Mr. Sadrakh told Tristan and Jonathan to both play.

12 November - Thursday
Mr. Sadrakh started with the attendance and asked us about the goings-on of our blogs. He told us to read out from our reflections out loud. Then, we discussed about the C major scale and chords. We played a quiz on the chords on scales. In a while, we learnt about 3# and 4# scale.
*note: There was not any Instrument Class because we (the students) chose to continue discussing than going to the Instrument Class

Mr. Sadrakh told us we can get a re-test for our assessment last week. About ½ of the class wanted to, not me. They started playing and were better than last time. We needed to write our reflections on 5 sheets in ½ an hour. When we are done, we proceeded to our snack.

We packed out our instruments (except for piano students) after coming in the music room. Today was the assessment day, and everybody was nervous. THe first of the class to play, was the violin students. Followed by piano, guitar, then flute. The songs we played were our melodies. Not everyone was prepared to do this, Mr. Sadrakh gave them low scores. But, he gave them a re-test to try better next week.
*note: there were no Instrument Class today because of the assessment.
Mr. Sadrakh asked us about pentatonic, C major scale and its' chords, how to put lyrics on a melody properly, G major scale and its' chords. Then, we were taught about the 1 flat scale and the 2 flat scale. The 1 flat scale is F-G-A-B flat-C-D-E-F.
The 2 flat scale is B flat-C-D-E flat-F-G-A-B flat
We had to prepare for our presentation on Thursday tomorrow and Mr. Sadrakh told us our scores for our melody. I was happy I got a 9/10 :)!
