THE DYNAMIC MARKINGS (“D-M,S”) OR PHRASING (THE TEMPO MARKINGS) TYPICALLY APPEARS AT THE BEGINNING OF THE SONG. IF YOU DON’T SEE ANY PHRASING OR D-M,S, THE SONG SHOULD BE PLAYED AT A MEDUIM VOLUME.

AS DYNAMIC MARKINGS OFTEN CHANGE THROUGHOUT A SONG, ALWAYS READ AHEAD. LEARN TO UNDERSTAND YOUR SHEET MUSIC BEFORE PLAYING IT.

ALWAYS REVIEW AND HIGHLIGHT YOUR “D-M,S” BEFORE YOU PLAY A SONG. THIS SIMPLE TECHNIQUE GIVES YOU A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT IS COMING AHEAD AND YOUR TRANSITION WILL BE SMOOTH AND NOT STIFF.
