Metronomes are your friend! It's the only way you're going to get those sextuplets in time :D Set it quite slow to start with. Also, have you got a recording of the accompaniment?

Timing Question - John Rutter, Suite Antique

I wasn't sure where this post should go, so I'm sorry if it's in the right place! There's a big competition where I live, and the first rounds are next February. I'm going for it, and I have to prepare a concert programme lasting 8 minutes. I've decided to play the Suite Antique, by Rutter, but I ca...

Hello! I can see you're from Poland - just to let you know, we don't use "ais" or "fis," so you might not have got any replies yet because we don't know what they mean! Sorry! :cry: Does it mean "sharp" - this sign? http://www.doubleclick.com.sg/town4kids/kids/music4kids/dictionary/symbols/sharpsign...

Finger pain

When I practise, the little finger of my right hand starts aching quite badly. I take lots of breaks, but it still does. What do you think this could be? Might it be worth getting it checked out? I hope it's not Repetitive Strain Injury or anything :shock:

Poulenc, Double Tongueing and Gbs - all the good stuff...

I'm currently working on the first movement of the Poulenc Sonata, and all is good - except the double tonguing section. I'm alright with the double tonguing part, it's just the fact that it's an upper-register Gb and it has to be played piano. No matter what I do, I have to play it loudly otherwise...

I don't really know what's been going on either, I
haven't been around here for ages [::)] But it seems it's all pretty much
sorted out now, which is good.

I need help on fingerings

Ooer. Well, I'm not sure which F# and G# you need,
but this should help- it's a fingering chart for the flute [:)]

Mozart?

Thanks very much! I had a bit of an experiment today and double
tonguing certainly seems to be the best solution. I'll probably give your
metronome idea a go too; I've tried it with difficult passages noteswise but
the articulation sections could benefit too [:)]
