Practice the above excerpt from organ accompaniment of "All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name", Op. 74 by Amy Marcy Beach this way:
1. Upper stave with the right hand
2. Lower stave with the left hand (omit the lowest notes of the octaves in the left hand which go beyond the compass of the organ)
3. Both staves together with both hands
Take a slow tempo, aim for a smooth legato touch and 3 correct repetitions in a row in each step.
Post time and the number of repetitions to comments.
