 Re: Rose Etudes at Warp 9 for (Texas) HS Auditions

There are a lot of tricks to do while playing. But I need to know the piece. Rats!

For example if it is a slower piece one of the tricks is to press down on the keys before you lift your fingers up. Also slowly move your fingers down very slowly and don't snap your fingers. So press down and lift and very slowly let your finger melt to the keys.

If the piece is on the faster side always get louder as the notes go up and softer and the notes go down the scales.

Think of a story when playing a piece. Don't play the notes. For example when I perform the Mozart Quintet and the Concerto the slow movements I know that Mozart loved to dance with beautiful women on the weekends. So in my mind I think of these beautiful women slow dancing flawlessly to the music he wrote so well. As a performer we have to get into the MOOD of the piece. We have to SEE the piece in color, not notes.

Another piece that is so often played wrong is the Copland Concerto. The cadena was written according to Copland himself, yes I talked to him about this piece. It was written for Benny Goodman and he and Benny grew up in the 1940's in New York City both loving Big Band music. This was to be played with a jazz feel. A Big Band feel. But as we all know some players try to triple tongue this part and get through it in about 8 seconds or less! Yes a joke, but you get the idea.

So get your student to FEEL what is going on here. What does the music remind him of? Then he should be OK. His nerves should be under control or at least the idea of what the piece is about will settle him down.

Hope this helps
