Description: This class works through one student's grade 2 competition repertoire. First, we listen to the 2/4 march "Leaving Glenurquhart" and discuss down beat pulsing throughout, as well as opening up some technique. Next we listen to the strathspey "Highland Harry" and work aggressively on the strong weak strong weak strathspey idiom. Now what would otherwise be quite round turns into a lively well-expressed tune. Then we look at "The Rejected Suitor" and discuss the reel idiom. Finally, we look at the hornpipe "Doctor MacInness' Fancy" and establish a down beat pulse consistently throughout the tune.
