Re: Difficult Grade 1's
I guess I do not see rehearsing a piece slow to get technique worked out as being a harder piece. I rehearse under tempo quite awhile on all of the pieces we perform before I start speeding up to performance tempo.
Storm Mountain Jubilee is just eighth notes and you do not have to take the written tempo for the piece to be fun and effective.
Maybe the piece was not hard for my group because they liked it, bought into it and they were willing to work on it.
