The Music Reading Review section in Lesson Ten contains a piece taken from Igor Stravinsky's Russian Ballet "Firebird," the piece provided from that ballet is, "Ronde Des Princesses." Develop the two sections of the melody up to the goal tempo (shown in the handout on page 8). Be mindful of the time signature shift into measure ten. Along with the time signature change there is also a key signature change as well. NOTE: Build the piece up to a skill level where the entire chart can be performed in time without stopping for any errors.
