How to practice Burgmuller’s Harmony of the Angels (also known as “Angels’ Voices”)

In the video below, I demonstrated a preliminary blocking chord motion, while shaping the line, and having interactive flowing hands.

Understanding how harmonic rhythm/resolutions of chords, for example, affect phrasing helps the student to interpret the music.

Un-blocking chords follows with forward rolling wrist motion. (lesson in progress with an adult student)
