Piano Lesson Musings
I am currently studying for my grade 8 piano. I have 4 weeks to go, and it’s becoming really intensive! It’s time to get to the details rather than just the notes on the page. It’s time to perfect the technique and get not only the notes correct but also the tempo, the phasing and the p to f. Today I had my piano lesson. And like many lessons, it was a mixed bag. Some things have really improved. My double octaves are faster although the left-hand needs more alone practice. My dominant 7? are also more even as is the arpeggios. I did make a discovery though. Even a small amount of time outside can make your hands too cold. I will have to remember to wear gloves before the exam.
