In class we played Fly around my pretty little miss from memory and worked on refining right hand technique while doing so, we talked about how to accompany or “COMP” in a musical situation as opposed to just constantly playing the melody, we learned how to read and play dotted quarter notes, we worked on Too Young to Marry, and we read thorough Dennis Murphy’s Polka.
