Recently I’ve started using a set of very simple music markings in my practice–they’re pretty basic, but I thought I would share! I’ve always marked practice spots, and encouraged students to mark their own, with a start or a circle or a bracket, but this is an easy way to be a little more specific.
Mark your music with:
- N=figure out Notes
- A=Articulation (accents, staccatos, etc.)
- T=hmmm…I was using it to mean Tone, but thinking about it, I think it might be more useful as reminder for Technique awareness. What do you think might be a good substitute for Tone? S=Sound? D=Deep Bow? I would love your thoughts!
Apologies, by the way, to any blog followers who got the link for lasagna this morning! I posted to the wrong blog! If anybody does want my lasagna recipe though, you are welcome to head over to the correct link here!
