      I don’t want to ask a dumb question but I’m struggling to know what to do with these practice charts.
      You talk of counting how many “beats” you can play, or duration, but what do you consider a “beat” ?
      Is it one slur, as in playing one C#-F# ? So if I have the metronome at 60 BPM, am I to count how many of these slurs I can do per each tick of the metronome. It seems to be very important as you ask us to make it a regular part of our daily practice routine so I want to know I am doing it correctly.

      Hey there kcappozzo, you are not the first to ask so don’t panic.

      I am doing a video on this today for you so stand by!

      Cheers,
      Greg

      p.s. there is a video on the WindWorks FB page already but I’m incorporating this one into the new trial module of videos.

        So we should assume 4/4 time (4 quarter notes to a measure)? Wouldn’t putting a time signature on the exercises clear this up? (Each beat equals 1 quarter note = 2 eighth notes = 4 sixteenth notes.)

        In other words, each measure contains 4 beats. So if you could play it for 2 measures you could check the 8 Beat box. If you completed an entire 4 measure exercise at 80 BPM, that would be 16 beats.

      This clears things up perfectly. Thank you so much for the personal attention ! Back to work I go !
