Harump, harrumph I have adapted several of his ideas for technique for my young ones. We start slow do them everyday with out fail When we get to a split. ( those that can play the 2 bar phrase faster. ). They play it at double tempo twice hole others play it once. That way the better kids aren't bored. We may do this same exercise in two or three different keys by the end of the year. The key to me is challenging them to go faster each week with the metronome.
