Performance Level 1: A German Folk Song

Updated: Jun 1, 2021

It is beneficial to record a final performance piece. Set up a camera or tablet on a tripod and press record.

Stand near the piano and say

"This piece is often referred to Spring Song: A German Folk Song. It shows a difference between legato and staccato. Legato means to play smooth and you can hear this at the beginning, Staccato means to play detached which you can hear in the middle section.
Thank you for listening."

Now play your piece.

Remember not to stop if you do slip, just carry on. The beat is the most important part of the presentation, keep this constant.

After seven days it should sound like this.
