Technique in 30 Minutes

If there only were thirty minutes in a day to do technical exercises, here’s what I’d do:

  • Arpeggios with slow/fast alternation– c.15 mins
    • Three finger: p i m; p m i; p i a; p a i; p m a; p a m
    • Three finger (w/ repeated finger): p i m i; p m i m; p i a i; p a i a; p a m a; p m a m
    • Four Finger: p i m a; p m a i; p i a m; p a m i; p a i m; p m i a
  • One or two groups of Slur Exercises – c.10 mins
  • RH speed bursts on one string and a bit of string crossing work for the RH for the remaining time

    No, I think my chances are good since you only had, what?, somewhere in the range of 25 comments. 2 in 25 chance isn’t bad!
