Skills Analysis

Practice Strategy

Start to practise this piece away from the keyboard by reading the letter names and count values out loud. Following this go to the instrument and locate C3, position yourself with this key to the left, ensuring that the chair or stool is at the right height and the fingers are not flat on the keys. If you are not sure about the correct hand position sit with your knees slightly under the keys, allow your left arm to hang by your side in a relaxed position. When ready lift and place with the little finger on C3, keeping the natural curve of the hand. Tap each key required in the correct rhythm. Finally play the piece saying the count values out loud as you play.
