Good work on the Gymnopédie No. 1. Lets aim for a full performance next week!


D major & B minor melodic

  • both 1 octave up and down
  • take a moment to remember the key signature & fingerings before you start
  • Check where the C# sits with the tuner, then play B- C#-D with the tuner
  • Play the whole scale with the tuner and check each note
  • Play the whole scale with the metronome and try to get it so you can play up and down in one breath
  • take a break then try to play each scale perfectly one time


Gymnopédie No. 1

  • Practice the problematic sections and note transitions
  • Exaggerate the dynamics
  • Take a break, then try to play through the whole piece without stopping
