Mimi's entire lesson for today is posted here and broken into sections! Try playing along to the call + response sections at home. If you were not in class today please listen to the lesson. On Monday there will be a small quiz on big concepts that she talks about (latin vs. classical technique, function of the strings in latin music, the clave, how to build G7 and D7 chords). This is to make sure we're all prepared for her next lesson with us on Thursday!

Also, Mimi dropped of CDs of her group for everyone in orchestra! The album includes both Sambasaurus and Mimi's Minor Mambo. You can pick up a copy on Monday if you didn't get one today. 

Here is the MIDI accompaniment that she played from her phone in class! It features the chord progression from the solo section of Mimi's Minor Mambo. Try playing along with it!
