1. Minuet (21 in Galper Book)
    • Good work on this in lesson! Next lesson I’d like to talk about phrasing, so aim to be able to play through the whole thing with no breaks.
  2. Register Switch Warmup (Galper 68)
    • Practice with a tuner this week. I use an app called n-Track Tuner.
    • Use consistent air support as you cross the break, and aim to support the medium register with air support and high voicing so that it isn’t flat.
