Due Apr 13, 1:00 PM
Do your warm-ups on Lines 86, 87, 88. Work for great sounds on every note and correct tonguing, especially on 8th notes.
Line 90 Variations on a Familiar Theme--Read the information in the yellow box labeled Theory about what a Theme & Variations is.
Line 90 contains 2 different variations. Variation 1 is a rhythmic variation. It uses the correct melody but changes the rhythms to create the variation.
Variation 2 is a melodic variation, meaning that it adds different notes between the original theme to create a melody based on the original theme.
Practice playing line 90 and submit a recording of you playing this line.
