Week #10 is up! I had a different topic in mind for this week, but after recently working with some musicians these past two weeks-I really wanted to talk about key fluency. I give some quick tips on how you can better your key fluency beyond just running up and down a scale.

Be sure to check it out at http://jasonklobnak.wordpress.com

Enjoy!

Jason

Week #11 is ready to go! It's been a busy past couple of weeks (a good thing, right?), but I wanted to continue for one more week on the key fluency subject. This week's tip has something in there that will be great for all of the band directors here that are headed back to school.

Check it out at http://jasonklobnak.wordpress.com

All the best!

Jason
