Thanks for answering WFG. DH has a metronome, but DS's teacher hasn't gone through it with him yet. He tends to set a challenge each week and leave a piece for him to work out for himself which I actually like and which suits my son's temperament.
Just noticed it is grade 6. How old is he? I ask because I am currently having a debate with some mothers of musical children who are saying its very unusual to have 11 year olds play to grade 5 level on wind instruments!
He's 12. This piece is much harder than the others he's been given, but he seems to have the right idea.... I just wanted him to 'succeed' and demonstrate what he could do.
PS Sadly, it's been beyond my musical capabilities right from the start
