I have my first ever music grade exam on wednesday, piano grade 2, wish me luck i'm terrified!
I've been teaching myself piano for years now, i can read sheet music perfectly fine for both hands, i can play the right hand with ease.. but i just cannot play the second hand simultaneously. i can play them separately but not together my hands just freak out and go to fast or start trying to copy the hand i'm trying to focus on... has anyone got any tips for this? or learning the left hand parts? i'd really like to add the left hand in it sounds so much better on songs! thanks
Does anybody think it's likely to be able to learn the first movement of Rachmaninoff's 2nd Piano Concerto in 3 months, at my level?
I did my DipABRSM a year ago...
Looking to teach the piano. Grade 8 standard. Thinking of getting some business cards and advertising it to fellow students to avoid the issue of being away for long periods at term time and not having to get a CRB check. Also the piano's in my room and stuff. What should i look to teach with, what sort of materials would people recommend? Got a nice Roland digital piano (rrp £2100).
Currently studying for Grade 5 but to I intend to jump to 8 afterwards.
My 3 favourite classical pieces:
Lizst - Paganini La Campanella (Sounds awesome!)
Beethoven - Moonlight Sonata 3rd Movement (This piece is beautiful... you can sort of feel the emotion that Beethoven put into it, as he wrote it when he was starting to become deaf. As you can imagine, it was a nightmare for him)
Rachmanioff - Prelude in G Minor Op 23. #5 (I just love the sound of it)
