A practical guide for double bass players
MetadataShow full item record
This document and practice methodology is a supplement to a lecture-recital featuring the suite Sconcerto for double bass and orchestra by Armando Trovajoli. In this project, a practice formula was designed to maximize effective practice time and to maintain focus on mastery. Moving sequentially through the suite, the most challenging passages are recognized and technical exercises are provided in order to produce an efficient practice methodology. Warm-up exercises are presented for each movement as preliminary practice of specific musical aspects found in the movement, while technical exercises extrapolated from particular measures encourage efficient practice time. Recommendations are made for the practice of both the exercises and the original passages from the suite.
