Hi all...and Beth,

In the Gavotte in D Major, Suzuki Book 3, in the first full measure, there is an f# 8th note with a line through it...I've listened to Beth's video on this Gavotte and am curious as to any of you who have a 'live' teacher :) also.  Beth (and every youtube video I've watched) plays that note like you would a grace note...quickly...however my 'live' teacher tells me that the line through the note means that you hold it longer than a grace note...has anyone else heard this interpretation?  I intend to play it her way in my lesson but Beth's way at home as I think it sounds better.   Thanks for any feedback.

FYI- the next piece in book 3- the two Bourrees, in  Bouree II- according to my teacher- measure 12 begins with the Appogiatura Beth was just explaining in her video. I am beginning work on this piece and really loving it!

Ha ha.  I was just assigned this again by my current teacher. She teaches the quick 16th note version. The new edition of Suzuki has the 16th written in below the staff.

My first teacher said to play it longer as if it were and eighth note and it would subtract time from the attached half note.

I look forward  to hearing Beth's response too, I am just guessing on how to play it from playing it back awhile ago when all I did was memorize the songs.

I'm looking forward to this. I'm working on this piece with my local teacher and he has taught me to play it as a really fast grace note. Can't wait to see Beth's video response!!! Her personalized responses are always such a treat.

Gavotte in D Major
Thank you Beth, I'll look forward to your video...will it be titled the same as the teaching video's for this Gavotte?  I'll play it my local teacher's way because i respect her teaching but it sure doesn't sound like the way you play it.

Cheryl, the answer to your question is actually a little involved. I'll make a video response soon.

Cheryl, I am not in Suzuki 3 yet, but I know that grace notes are interpreted in different ways. Sometimes they are just very short, sometimes they "share" the "time allotment" equally with note they precede. I don't know when it is which - I am not sure whether there even are fast and safe rules, but what Barb played sounds right in my ears. So this would be a "long" grace note.

sorry for all the messages, but hope I did not confuse the issue, but someone with more experience will probably answer this better    Here is how I would play it

I think it is a trill but someone may correct me please or there may be more to it then that
