We dug in further into what might be holding your intonation issues back. Please practice these exercises in the way described below, and we will see if there is an improvement!!
Minutes to practice: 45 per day
What to practice: The same exercises as last week.
How to practice it most effectively: Anticipating the next note’s pitch BEFORE you play it, and then assess it as you are playing it and modify it to the pitch to the correct pitch before moving on — all while practicing in slow motion at a STEADY TEMPO.
Progress, progress, progress, every week!! Good song choices for the recital. Now, you know how to play confidently, so ‘practice performing’ so that when you’re actually performing in the recital, playing your pieces will be a breeze!

What to practice: The pieces noted in your notebook.
How to practice it most effectively: Before playing, moving to the correct rhythm, and then CONDUCTING yourself in on the count before you are about to play!
