 Some Student - Teacher Resources from Dr. Mann 

A quick reminder:Always bring your music and your PENCIL to rehearsal. 

Practice Routine: 

Remember - practice the scale for each piece before you play the piece. 

Check the sections that give you trouble - practice them slowly first, then gradually speed up to the performance tempo. Be patient with yourself! It might take several tries to get "up to speed" 

Ask you teacher for fingerings! 

Use the recording (below and on our video page) to listen and understand how your part fits into the whole piece! 

Here is some of our current music list with audio or video demos! These videos may help you when practicing. A tip - on YouTube, you can use the settings to have the video play at a slower speed - which can be really helpful!
