How to Use a Fingering (or Slide Position) Chart

Watch this video on how to use the fingering (or slide position) chart in the back of your lesson book AND YOU WILL BE ABLE TO TEACH YOURSELF new notes!!!

MusicRacer is a FUN note name and fingering game...and it's FREE! This video explains how to use it.

This app helps you strengthen your ability to recognize notes on the staff and to remember the fingering (or slide position) you need to play those notes. Organized in 3 increasingly challenging levels. What level can you make it to?

Serious musicians, and especially serious percussionists, practice with the steady beat of a metronome. Set the metronome to play a steady beat while practicing exercises from your lesson book and concert music. Set the metronome for a slow tempo at first (i.e. lower numbers such as 60 or 70) then increase the tempo as you gain confidence and comfort with the music (i.e. higher numbers such as 88, 96, 104, 120, etc.).
