Memory Tricks For Music?

Hidey Ho Boys and Girls

Do you have any memory tricks ( mnemonics ) for memorizing pieces your working on? Instead of just brute force repetition how do you practice the most effectively ?What ideas do you have for memorizing the circle of fifths?

I'm interested in finding ways to use brain training with my musical studies so I'm curious to find out what tricks you guys have out there.

Let er rip! 

Lento- Original Viola, Violin, and Piano Trio

 
Hi all, I am new here! This is one of the few songs I have started writing using this software. I love this piece and hope you will too. Please give me any feedback particularly with spelling on the piano line. Thanks!  https://musescore.com/user/19397031/scores/5508951    If you have any questions or would like to contact me directly please email me at Skylaraderthick@gmail.com!

Help me read please?

This seems like the place to ask beginner level questions so please may I? 
About me; You will have heard my story many times over - I took some lessons years ago and recently found myself wanting to get back in. I was being tutored back then and although I took some lessons over some years I don't think i ever got out of the gate really. I have next to no skill and zero confidence but i want that to change. At this point I have very basic reading skills, given a simple enough piece and enough time to study it and practice I can get a melody and baseline going.

So anyway, with a renewed gusto and a determined mindset that this time i will self study, i found myself here looking for music to play. Beatles, that's a good place to start right? simple, easy and everyone knows the tunes.
Penny lane, that's a goodun I say to myself and then BOOM i hit my first snag. 
The score:-

second measure, the first notes in bass line require a G in two octaves, the higher G remains held while the lower notes descend further. How is this played?  the stretch is impossible or am i reading it wrong?

thank you for humouring my idiocy.
