Octave Variations

    Most students learn the third octave fingerings in sequence. However, when they come to high range octaves in their music, they falter.  This exercise is designed "to think" about the fingers you move to reach the third octave rather than think  about the actual fingering. Start with the low-high variation first.  When you are proficient with it,  do the high-low variation.  You may also be creative with this exercise by adding two sixteenth notes on all the "ands" and then on the "numbered" beats.
