My piano teacher has decided that this year we will focus on classics. Heh. Yay. I'm really scared of classics, just so you know. You can spend months mastering a particularly brutil piece, but the sucky part is that it sounds so EASY. So when you have played it all the way through and turn to a peer to get some review, all you get is, "Really pretty, Hannah." versus persay, I don't know, Dancing on the Berlin Wall (my assignment a few months ago) where you get something much...more (see link to hear what I mean. It's crazy. And bipolar.)
Yeah, so I'm really worried. This is going to be a tough year. The songs (just for your boredom, or if you want to look them up and hear them) are:
Warm up - Original Fur Elise, Bach
Praeludium II, Bach *see video at top
Invention I, Bach
As you can see, we're really nailing out the Bach right now. Whoopee.
My goal for the year is to master this piece - it's INCREDIBLY hard. See Clair de Lune. If you haven't watched any of the other videos, watch THIS ONE. You will immediately be calmed down.
