Now, at this point,
you might want to send me a video.
You've been practicing your scales,
and I'd
like to see how your hands are looking,
if you're keep your positions together.
If you're getting a good sound on
the instrument while you're doing them.
If your fingerings make sense,
if you've been studying the fingerings and
you're starting to engrain
them into your thinking.
But remember before you send a video in,
check out what I've said to the other
students and I will take a look at
yours and give you some feedback.
