I show my 13-year old student, Albertina how to dip/roll the last measures of Burgmuller’s frenzied Ballade, while applying weight control to taper a phrase. (diminuendo)

    Love to watch your teaching. So reminds me of myself especially the gross motor movements designed to compel the student to hit the beats in the right places in time!
