  • Allowing time for depth of finger placement.
  • Refining finger motion.
  • Hearing high/low contrasts.
  • Developing flexibility and independence of finger placement.
  • Concentrating on "high thirds" in major keys and "low thirds" in minor keys
  • Executing accurate shifts from first to third position.
