I have never tried to play my cello whilst on the move, so unfortunately I do not have many strategies. :P I think the best thing to do would be to make sure that you know the music as thoroughly as you possibly can, so playing these particular pieces becomes almost automatic for you. Then practise marching as you play.

Good luck with it - marching band is an amazing achievement for someone with dyspraxia.

Wow! Good luck with that. Has someone who cannot carry out a proper conversation whilst going down stairs this would be incredible! :mrgreen:
