Long pieces of music should be learned and in small and digestible sections and 'Badinerie' is no different. Begin by mastering the first section which consists of crossing strings with different inversions. The second section uses more triads incorporating scale notes followed by a pair of ideas using staccato muting and a hammer on from nowhere. The next part showcases another type of pedal point involving a three note idea using a pull-off and hammer-on that serves as the pedal while the other notes alternate above. Practice this slowly with a metronome and make sure the coordination between the pedal point notes and the alternating notes above is flawless.
