Hendry – I am so happy you purchased a shoulder rest! Your sound and posture is much better, and you seem more comfortable as well!
– Recommended practice time: 15-20 min/day, 5 days/week
– Practice: D, G, and C Major scales (long notes), French Folk Song, Lightly Row, Song of the Wind, and Go Tell Aunt Rhody. You should always practice scales to warm up and don’t completely forget about Twinkle! Play Twinkle themes and variations once in a while as a warm-up so you don’t lose it. For French Folk Song and Lightly Row, practice playing in a steady beat and continue keeping an eye on those long bows. Go over the notes of Song of the Wind and Go Tell Aunt Rhody and play multiple times until you feel more comfortable.
Thank you and happy playing!
