Notes 24 Oct

1B

  • We’ve fixed rhythm this week, listen to added recording on playlist

Scales

  • Number one priority is getting fingering correct, or else the scale practice is useless/damaging
  • New scale D harmonic minor

Mozzie

  • Bar 1-4, slurs nee
  • Bar 4, RH in wrong spot
  • bar 8, RH going in the wrong direction

Notes 17 Oct

Ex 1B

  • get note lengths correct in 1B

Scales

  • D natural minor this week

Mozzie

  • to do small notes, do it without small notes, then add it later
  • combine hands first two lines
  • hands separate up to bar 11. Encourage independent reading

Summer Toccatina

  • continue to listen to the recording for rhythm
  • For this week, focus on soft dynamics. Loud dynamics aren’t useful if there are no softs to go along with it. Even mp should be quite soft
  • Remember to start cresc soft
  • once rhythm and dynamics are correct that is about 90% of the piece done.

Notes 10 Oct

1C continue

  • wtih dynamics, following as it goes as it goes up and down

1B

  • get hands together this week

Scales

  • do hands seperate all scales up to G major

Mazurka

  • we want to do LH always soft so we can hear the RH
  • bar 9-11, big difference between mf and p
  • need to fix LH in 13-

Mozzie

  • Learn LH up to bar 8 with note chart carefully
  • Learn RH up to bar 8 as bonus.
