Piano Lesson: Rina, 5, plays “Frere Jacques” in C Major and “sad” minor, with legato fingering (smooth and connected) Video

Since Rina embarked upon legato playing two weeks ago in a five-finger position “roll” up and down, she’s made a nice transition to rendering her pieces in smooth and connected style.

The detached-note playing for at least 6 months prepared her for LEGATO.

Here’s “Frere Jacques” in C Major, and minor.(using Eb)

Rina “READS” this form of floating-note, pre-staff notation:

She was introduced to the “sad”-sounding folk song with the “FLAT” early in her studies which began about 7 months ago.
