  • We had some time to catch up and practice
  • We reviewed what pieces would be covered in class

  • We started the class with a discussion about #7 and our teacher demonstrated how to play it
  • The initial link that I had provided is not the best version to use (oops!), so I have changed the link below to reflect the Schirmer version, which includes more detailed revisions and fingering by Max Vogrich
  • We reviewed how to play the second bar of #7 - you must play the octaves legato, so start with your thumb on the bottom G and move to your second finger while still holding down the bottom G, but releasing your hand from the top G
  • Then, move smoothly to the D-octave
  • The left hand is very tricky, so utilize the provided fingering (thanks Max!)
  • Also note that in the third bar from the end of the piece, you hold down the first note in the left hand for the duration of the next 3 notes
  • Similarly, the same technique is applied on Page 13 for the first 2 bars of lines 2 and 3 - only here, you hold down the first note in the left hand for the duration of the next 7 notes
  • For next class, keep practicing #6 and increase the tempo, and for #7 practice hands separately - only put them together if you are comfortable (I am not!)
  • Remember, these pieces get progressively more difficult with each successive number, until we get to #40 - yeah, like that will ever happen!

  • We then moved on and played the third movement (but not near the Presto tempo indicated by the composer) - first 2 pages of the third movement + 2 lines from page 3, up to the repeat sign
  • Note the trill in Bars 1 and 5 - you can play them as written - or you can play an extra note by starting on the C
  • Note in Bars 4, 8, 34, 36 and Bar 38 that the three notes are all played as eighth notes, even though they are not depicted as such
  • For next class, practice up to the end of Bar 171 (see below)

  • While we did not "entertain" our teacher with this one in class, it is expected that you will keep practicing it (how many hours are there in a day?)
