Tips for getting things even

  1. Rhythm practice. This tests the relationship between your fingers. There are many different rhythms to try.

Expressive Tips:

  1. LH can be phrased. This makes the peformance more dynamic. This is however incredibly difficult to do
  • bar 9 not much pitch movement, that’s why it is mp. Go very soft here
  • bar 12 lots of pitch movement, phrase LH
  • 15-19, plan for peaks, start from very soft then get louder. Also make sure note lengths are correct here.
