Lesson 63
The Xtremes: Xtreme Pitches and Rhythms
Part 1

In continuing to work with the precision fan, this lesson introduces two short, briskly paced
melodic sequences. The first is a sequence that is primarily a melodic descent, while the
second is a melodic ascension. They’re both designed to test your ability to simultaneously
hit precise pitches and synchronize them with rhythm. In addition, since the pitch hand moves
back and forth in relation to the pitch rod and the fingers on the volume hand move back and
forth through the threshold, this will intentionally challenge your coordination as they move
sometimes in the same direction and sometimes in opposition.
