Hints for Capricho: This is a Serenade, and as such needs to be very emotional. Many players take liberties with the tempo to make it more emotional and unique (tempo rubato). There are sections in freestroke that have accented notes, which require the player to switch between freestroke and reststroke very quickly and seamlessly. There is also a lot of repetition in this piece, so follow the directions in the videos very carefully. The video order to perform this piece is as follows:

Video 1 Measures 1-4 twice, then continue till end of lesson.
