Piano Street

My first day learning a new piece and what was accomplished (Video)

In keeping with my resolution to learn new music quickly but thoroughly, I’ve set out today’s first experience with Tchaikovsky’s colorful, “Winter Morning” (Op. 39, No. 2, Children’s Album) to give students of piano, ideas surrounding their first encounter with a composition: how the physical, musical, cognitive and affective (emotional) dimensions of a work, can become part of the whole (gestalt) even in the earliest practicing efforts.

So instead of talking assiduously about my approach, I’ll let the video give its own best illustration of today’s musical foray.
