Your Repertoire - Tune of the Week

"Your Repertoire" tune of the weeks are an essential element in reaching your full potential. These are weeks where instead of using new and unfamiliar material to focus on our fundamentals, we about face and use those fundamentals to work to improves some of our existing repertoire. We work to apply all that we recent progress toward eliminating bad habits and improving the tunes that we play regularly. Take these weeks seriously, sure you don't need to learn a new tune, but now we need put what we've learned to the test.

*A note about choosing your own tunes. Be sure to pick tunes on which you've already spent a considerable amount of time practicing. These tunes should come from your existing repertoire. If you don't currently play a tune from this idiom, please choose one of our past weekly tunes to become part of your repertoire.

** You may substitute two 2 parted tunes in place of one 4 parted tune for the following Idioms ONLY: Strathspey, Reel (must be dot-cut style), 6/8 March, Hornpipe (dot-cut style) and Jigs (round permitted)
