In this session we take a look at 2 of my favorite technique building exercises - the GDE and Doubling exercises. We start with what grace notes are and how they should be treated. Then through three different versions of a typical GDE exercise. Then we end with a doubling exercise system good for all variations.
In this class we take a look at gracenote hierarchy- the order in which gracenotes are played in tunes, and why they're written that way. We use Shoshanna's Lullaby and Colin Thompson as some contextual examples of why we see what we see on the page and how it can help us to learn our music more efficiently.
