How Can I be Successful In Chamber Orchestra

It has been shown that practicing 20 minutes a day can truly make a difference in learning an instrument. Here are some tips to help you practice better. 

1. Set up a routine like we do in class
  • warm-up with scales
  • work through difficult sections of music first
  • play through the whole piece from beginning to end
2. Problem area step-by-step 
  • Review the letters AND Clap the rhythm
  • Check for accidentals
  • Begin slowly
  • Slowly increase speed
  • Repeat
3. If still struggling, please email me and let's set up a time!
