students' area : andantino
Andantino has a "surprise" note, everything is pretty
staccato (separated, short) and soft until you see the accented
half note (note that's hollow), make this one loud, or a "surprise"!
Please notice rit. (Ritard = slowing down) and also diminuendo
(a hairpin, closing shape that means to get softer gradually.) Also
another practice point of Andantino is the "creeping"
to the tip, to prepare for each up bow "surprise" note
(the note that's accented), you'll have to get to the tip gradually
using a little more down bow bit by bit to change position of your
bow to the upper half and "creep" to the tip - be sneaky!
