Good practice today. We did:
- G scale on the G string.
- Perpetual Motion on the G string.
- Perpetual Motion in first position, with A-M in the right hand. M played with authority, though she was digging in a bit too deep on the pad instead of playing with her nail. Still, for how new this exercise is, she did well.
- The Fuhrman Tanz twice through. M seems to have the structure down. She didn’t do much with her dynamics, but she did play nicely legato.
I wonder if she might get a better handle on some dynamic ideas (e.g., echos) if we practiced just those portions of several songs, rather than playing entire songs and trying to incorporate multiple ideas in each song.
