Hints on Julia Florida: This is a very emotional song that is a lot harder than it appears to be. While I don’t think there are any truly difficult sections in this piece, as a whole it is still quite technical and hard to perform to its fullest potential. The piece is mostly played in freestroke but you may bring out the melody more by playing those notes in reststroke. There are a lot of ornamental slides which can easily cause the player to lose track of the beat and make the piece sound disjointed. There are a lot of harmonics throughout the piece, especially at the end, so make sure you perform them correctly. There are a lot of directions to follow in this piece: There is a repeat sign, two different endings, a da capo, and a coda, so pay close attention to the directions.
