Not meaning to be sniffy but I still try to do what I was told
which is, in quick time to skip on the first beat whereas in s'pey to
dip and travel on the first beat. Was I told wrong?? I thought that
was why it was called skip, change of step.
Will this discussion outlast the hop in the s'pey I wonder? :))
