RIP TIDE (2-mallet marimba)
Technique – building strength and tempo to play moving, chromatic unison rhythms at 1/4 note = 200bpm (today developing exercises to move forward at about 1/4 note = 130/140bpm)
Reading – read through layout 1-2 (pages 1-5); sight-reading GH Greene rags
SURFACE DRIFTS (4-mallet marimba)
Technique – working on strength (rebuilding calluses on middle fingers), as just really getting back into practicing 3-4 hours a day
4-mallet sight-reading – Bach chorales
No work on actual music for Surface Drifts… skin on middle fingers is tender!
