In this session we talk about technique and it's very building blocks - syllables. Each technical piece has a syllable pattern that needs to match each other. Finally we talk about fusion of the short note into technical phrases. At the same time stressing both placement and clarity of the movement.
In this session we take a hard look at what doublings are made up of and how to improve them. We look at type A and type B doublings as well as learn an exercise to use with doublings for quality and placement.
Have you ever wondered how to develop your current repertoire in a way that ACTUALLY made you better? Well, this class is the class for you! We'll talk about what makes a good gracenote, and how to implement (and RE implement) gracenotes into your repertoire.
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.
