Great lesson today! It’s fun to explore different topics of music in our chats.
Keep on working on that major scale warm up into the pedal register. When you reach the low F, drop the jaw a little more and follow your ear to the destination. This exercise will get your mind, fingers, air and face engaged right away. Also keep in mind the whole tone scale we talked about! Thats a fun one to know and it’s important to understand how its constructed.
Etude in D sounding much better! You did a nice job picking up on the articulation. All it takes is a little bit of patience and commitment to break down the tune in manageable chunks. Keep on working on it until it comes naturally. Check out the first 8 bars of Power Ride as well. Thats a fun one. Enojy!
