Course Name: Repertoire Expansion
Class Name: Flett from Flotta
Class Instructor: Carl Donley
Date of Original Live Class: April 24th, 2012 at 6:30pm

Description: Tonight's class features the short but iconic two parted 'Flett from Flotta'. This 4/4 is a great tune to break into Modules to practice top hand doublings: E, F and G, doubling. We broke each bar down and practiced the concepts of ASAP and ALAP. The techniques for expressing this tune would be the same for any 4/4, and is a great way to transform an even 4/4 march into a lively musical performance.

  1. The timing is wrong for the last high A before the end of each part. It's a quarter note, not a dotted eighth. Beat falls on the E not the C.
