In this week's class we review Brigadier General Ronald Cheape of Tiroran, looking at key examples in the tune where we need to to keep our eyes out for potential pitfalls and cheating our short notes. We discuss a little bit more depth than last week in terms of modulating the length of long notes to accommodate good phrasing and pulsing while still maintaining consistency of short notes for maximum musicality.
In this session we take apart the technical bits of Brigadier General Cheape. We work to develop exercises that emphasize both placement and quality of movements. Before we do that however, we discuss rhythm and how technique is inserted into the framework of the tune through mastery of the short note and fusion.
In this session we take a look at the classic 2/4 competition march Brigadier General Ronald Cheape of Tiroran. While yes we will rip apart all the technique in this tune... its mastery of rhythm that rule this tune. Enjoy!
