Learning

Venetian Gondola Song 22/6/22 Played bass clef which is still useful for practice to get the feeling of water.  Heard the first page both hands.  

Let it Be Me 12/5 just play right hand with chords in left hand.

Over the Rainbow 26/5/22 Both parts working well.  Tidied up the first part in rhythm.  Just need to have attention.

Bye Bye Blackbird – 15/7/21 – IMPACT CONCERT

IMPROVISATION – Working on C and G chords – moving in patterns all over the piano.

When the Saints Go Marching In 30/6 Deliberately messing the octaves.

Preparing to Video

Michael, Row the Boat Ashore 17/2/22 A bit shaky.  Needed a few starts but lovely phrasing

Amazing Grace 22/6/22 – First half much better than the 2nd page which is more hesitant but it’s becoming a lot more fluid.

Kumbaya 9/12/21 Do not rush semi-breve.

Krakowiak 22/6/22 Practice the hard section 10 times before doing the rest.Tempo to be the same throughout. Getting much better.   Today was much better.  Don’t forget to observe staccato. 

Preparing to perform

Swans on the Lake 11/11/21 One tiny slip that could hardly be noticed.  All good.  Just keep practicing to keep it fluid.
