Checklist

  1. No gaps in pedal. Use your fingers to be smooth
  2. Perfect phrasing/dynamics. Make sure softs are soft.
  3. Don’t stop

Passacaglie

  • Get beast mode on the third and fourth pages by practicing four bars at a time and identifying key mistakes. Focus on this because it is one of the last things that you need to do out of the entire exam.

America

  1. Softs need to be softer, don’t lift your fingers of the keys, you can also use soft pedal
  2. Keep a steady speed instead of a very fast one. It will make it much easier to record.
