Commentary:

So far you have been using one accent. The exercises presented the difficulty of applying one accent, and from here on you will be combining more accents. As mentioned earlier, music is full of accents. They are parameters that allow us to transmit sensations, what is known as “musicality”. From here on you will be applying various accents to your strokes, your first steps towards infusing your style of playing with expression.
