Pitch, a Fit: Strings and Winds Use Vertical Intonation in Rehearsals and Concerts

  • thumbnail for Karl Reinarz
  • The demo high school full orchestra will strive for the best intonation as we search for the most effective ways to tune short excerpts from Grade 2-6 Full and String literature. Reference notes teach the players to listen, to listen with purpose, to ‘adjust’ while playing, to learn some of the context of their part, and to decide which part is the current foundation. Their home practice improves, as they apply vertical intonation raising their level of scrutiny and accuracy.
