Advanced Homework 10/29

- F major, 3 octaves (practice)

Continue working on shifting in The Barber of Seville

As you play this week, consider tone and projection -- try playing closer to and farther from the bridge, use more bow for louder dynamics, and consider the shorter string length in higher positions. In each song, what is one way you can improve the sound of the music by playing with these ideas in mind?


Riu Riu Chiu - know your entrances better than your teacher does
