John P. ...I am a graduate of the University of California, where I received a BS. and PhD. in chemistry. I have done quite well on several standardized tests, including the general and subject (chemistry) Praxis exams. I recommend students prepare for standardized tests by working through practice exams for relatively short periods of time several times a day.

David R. ...In the major modes (I usually use the Ionian mode) I try to stay away from the ! !V V progressions and use finger picking to accentuate interval sounds of say a 10th (or acceding with the 11th & 13th. My jazz compositions similarly run in the melodic minor range, while used frequently, they are no less beautiful. I have a good handle on music theory and it's applications.
