- Level I: Good focus of tone on EVERY note
- Level II: Add perfect intervals (tuning)
- Level III: Add clarity of the written articulations, and make sure any articulation symbols are different from the notes that are not marked, and from those with different marks.
- Everyone: Take the first repeat only (AAB form).
Levels I and II: Do not concern yourself with speed or any thoughts of tempo. Focus on the 2 Ts: Tone and Tuning.
Advanced players: This is NOT a race. It is all about TUNING and clarity (gotta love those slurs!).
