Practicing tip #1 find the pattern

Posted on 01. Mar, 2011 by admin in Mots et Mystères | No Comments

When you’re working on something that you’re tripping over, find the pattern within.  For example:

a) are all your shifts in a scale down bows? Up bows?  Funny, but that alone can trip you up or clean up the passage.

b) group notes on the same string and MAKE a pattern.  Sometimes our brain knows there’s a pattern and will trip us up until we find it.

c) is your string change within a passage up bow or down bow – it’s a detail, but if you think or just write a bowing sign on the string change, “do-re-mi- DOWN- sol la si do” that just might clean it all up.
