Performance Critiques - Competition 2/4 Marches - #17 [Vintage]


Course Name: Performance Critiques
Class Name: Competition 2/4 Marches
Class Instructor: Carl Donley
Date of Original Live Class: May 3rd, 2012 at 6:30pm

Description: In this class we hear two 2/4 competition marches: Major Manson's Farewell to Clachantrushal and Leaving Genlurquhart. Throughout this class we focus on pulsing the downbeats of a 2/4 and moving through the rest of the beat. There is also, a great discussion of ASAP ALAP at the end where we discover that even when slowing a tune down to work on it, the ASAP stays the same size. Tempo then becomes that method of controlling the length of 'expressive / pulsed' notes.
