Harmonic Series, Intonation, and Tuning


Below are resources dealing with the harmonic series, intonation, and tuning.

Ask/Email Mr. Smith for a fingering chart that can help with intonation.

When mapping Intonation, it is recommended to play a passage containing that pitch and hold that pitch in the passage.

Also, consider each dynamic level when playing as this can effect intonation.

It is recommended to map your intonation every few moths and to do it at multiple dynamic levels.
