GMP Practice Repetition Tokens (set of 5)
1. Line up the tokens on one side of the music stand.
2. Select a difficult passage or measure.
3. Turn on the metronome to a playable speed.
4. Play the passage.
5. Was it exactly the way you wanted it? YES: Scoot a token to the other side of the stand! NO: Play it again.
Rule: If you mess up, all the tokens go back!
Goal: To play the passage five times in a row without error.
And then what? Speed up the metronome and repeat the process, OR, select a different passage.
Advice: Short-passage repetition is most effective in 10- to 15-minute increments.
