NOTES: Touch:
• All SM, CM and AR ascending and descending with clear, even legato touch
• SM and SDO also with clear, even staccato touch

Tempo:
• SM (legato) = MM 104 (4 notes per beat) – 4 octaves, L/R sep and tog
• SM (staccato) = MM 80 (4 notes per beat) – 4 octaves, L/R sep and tog
• CM (legato) = MM 80 (4 notes per beat) – 2 octaves, L/R tog
• SDO = MM 80 (2 notes per beat) – 2 octaves, L/R sep and tog
• AR (legato) = MM 76 (4 notes per beat) – Root position and all inversions, 4 octaves,
L/R sep and tog

Volume:
• SM (Legato) = p, f, ascending cresc. and descending decresc.
• SM (staccato) = mf
• CM (legato) = mf
• AR (legato) = mf
