Bring your “Habits of a Successful Middle-Level String Musician” each week!
Focus on 29-end – with a metronome!!
First Violins: practice your fingering at measure 17-21. Play the octave lower part first to hear the intonation.
Pieces of Eight: Listen Here!
Practice with a metronome and slowly work up the tempo. (Goal is dotted quarter = 120)
Focus on the dynamics in your music’s markings — particularly very very soft pianos! Like 37, 55, and 62.
37-50: work on staying piano with just the one measure crescendos to forte, dropping immediately back down to piano!
