I noticed that the phrasing in exercise 3 starts on beat 2 and ends on beat one of the next measure. My natural insticts, had I been composing this piece, would have been to start the phrase on beat 1 and end up with the accent on beat 4. This might be an insignificant thing, but does that effect the performance of this phrase, especially how the cresendo works?
Thanks you again for a great course! I enjoy it and working with Gary's String Orchestra.
