Performance Notes

  • Octave placement may be adjusted as needed. In fact, many parts include optional 8va or 8vb depending on the instrument.
  • All repeats are optional.
  • Tempo markings are rough guidelines and don’t necessarily need to be adhered to strictly. Use whatever tempo is an appropriate balance for both the piece and your students.
