2/1: Las Amarillas
I think that in spite of getting COMPLETELY lost my first time through, I did a decent job on Friday; at least I kept the beat going steady, and I did eventually find my place. One thing I immediately noticed upon watching the video was that I was rocking back and forth quite a bit. It kind of went away when I got lost, but it probably shouldn't be a trade-off between knowing where I am and knowing how to stand (relatively) still.
The part I found most challenging was jumping between parts in order to cue them; once I was following one line it was hard to find where I was in relation to the other parts. My goal had been to stay with what I saw as the main melody, which was usually the treble II part, but I kept getting distracted by the other parts. I think it was a matter of hearing it for the first time all together, since I never got the chance to look up a recording of the piece being performed. I will definitely look one up before going to Central and working this with the girls there.
One thing I was never sure I was doing right was breath cues. I had a hard time distinguishing between cues for entrances on the beat and those on the subdivision (usually the "and" of the beat). Any tips concerning this issue would be much appreciated.
