I'd agree that if you don't need Gd 8 for Uni, concentrate on your As. I hope you have the will to come back to it later tho' - I did the same and never actually got round to doing the Gd 8
I'm playing Weber's Perpetuum Mobile at a concert in 2 weeks :O So scary haha
Hi, I'm going to take my grade 1 piano exam, how does it work?
How many pieces will you be given to play and how long do they let you revise for?
Can you please explain the details of the surroundings? is it just one room and you go in 1 by 1 or is it a massive all with everyone playing at the same time?
I live in London, NW6. Thanks.
Also, can anyone recommend me a link full of grade 1 piano examination pieces please? ( or is this copyright-illegal)?
I think this is the best place to put this...
I haven't played piano in a little while, but I'm looking to get back into playing for fun. I'm at about Grade 8 standard (the set pieces for ABRSM were no problem when I was preparing for the exam), and over the last few years I've had a lot of fun with Grieg's Lyrical Pieces. I want to branch out a bit, though - can anyone recommend to me anything else I might enjoy? (Preferably another set I can work my way through?)
If anyone could give some advice
Chopin étude 10/8 - how should you play the semiquavers (in the first section)?
E.g. 2nd bar, A G F C x4 descending (fingering 4 3 2 1)
The past few weeks I've been playing it with a "rotating" wrist, when switching from the thumb to 4th finger, but apparently this is bad technique. My sister/teacher said I should let go after hitting the C with my thumb, but this sounds detached and uneven. Should it all sound smooth without pedal?
