Piano practice review #1, Clementi

A piano session with Maria Rayzvasser: This Clementi Sonatina is an example of sonata form - one of the most important and difficult musical forms. There is a large body of theory that has to be studied. Now that the student knows the sections of the sonata-allegro movement she is ready to study more difficult Classical Sonatas. We plan on learning some of Mozart's Viennese Sonatinas during the next semester. Stay tuned!    

Piano practice review #2, Bach

Here is another piano lesson with Maria Rayzvasser: Everyone is making mistakes at public performances from time to time. Even talented and experienced musicians. There is one basic rule about how to do it "right" - no one should notice the mistake unless he knows the piece very well. I teach my students how to behave on stage if they forgot the music or something unexpected happened during the performance. For example at the video the student forgot almost 3 bars. Guess where?   (Answer: 0:59-1:03)
