Practice the whole piece with a particular focus on accents and dynamics.


Soon Hee Newbold – Mythos


Beethoven/Hoffman – Allegro from Symphony No. 5
Practice all!
Practice with your part recording as well as another instrument part recording!

(1) Practice mm. 63 to 84 carefully with metronome. Practice it 3x a day with metronome. Be careful to count your half notes and any other long notes carefully. Sometimes these run ahead if you are note careful.
(2) Intonation is important in mm. 98 to 119. Check that you know exactly what note you are playing and make sure to follow so that you are playing the correct note at the correct time each time you play it. This would be a great passage to practice with one of our recordings below to check your intonation!








Neuendorff/Conley – Wandern ach Wandern
Neuendorff/Conley – Wandern ach Wandern
