Jump to new posts Reading harmonically by Arghhh @ 07/06/14 10:51 PM

I've heard some people who are good sight readers talking about reading harmonically. One example I can think of now is they say they don't read all the notes in an arpeggiated bass, but recognize that it is essentially an arpeggiation of a G major

I've been able to get some extra practice time in during this holiday weekend, so I've gone ahead a few more pages. Right now I'm working on "When The Saints Go Marching In" with RH melody and LH chords (pg 45). It's actually coming along b

There is no need for sarcasm. Equating a piano inspection of a c.$50k-$100k instrument to an automobile safety inspection is misleading; a home inspection is more propos: a potential buyer should have the structure evaluated to ascertain if there

It is definitely a cool table. I had seen these same pictures a couple of years ago and I remember it was being offered for 4 or 5 grand. For me, I would buy a cheaper table and get more piano.

Hi, Heather -- just a quick note to say that I very much like your choice of groupings and order of presentation. The Schoenfield Intermezzi are indeed introspective and meditative, and the Ravel is of course a modern evocation of the 17th century

[Sarcasm/engaged] Well, I guess that I am way off base in my priorities. I just haven't felt that a loose glue joint was of the same importance as failing ignition switches in automobiles which have lead to the deaths of the owners. But, I promise

It is just like how you get to Carnegie Hall-practice, practice, practice. Set A220 to A440 using the 3rd/10th test but lower A220 enough that the 3rd is ever so slightly slower than the 10th. Then tune your fourth above A220 to 1 beat per second. T

You will need to learn a bit of basic theory before/or during the learning process of this piece. This Link will take you to free theory youtube clips. The guy is a bit eccentric but if you can see past that I think this is a great starting place.

I didn't watch the video, Francisco, but I'm way slow when practicing slow. Usually my slow practice is when I'm first learning a piece, and then whenever I'm problem-solving. Slow practice is about understanding every last thing I'm trying to do and

I often go dead slow when I'm working out something technical. Like Francisco, I don't think of this as a proportion of the ultimate speed of the piece. To me, it's a different kind of "slow practice" from playing through the whole thing un

Ah, I thought you meant 3 flats behind a single note. Yes, it seems to be in Eb major, so you play Eb, Bb, and Ab as your flatted notes. What you call "3 lines" might be the trill symbol as in m. 7.

Like Keystring, at first I thought you meant there were 3 flats for a single note, not the key signature itself. Triple flats are extremely rare and I have never seen one in my sheet music. Anyways, I believe that piece is in C minor (relative to E
