Piano - Nocturne in slow motion

Post by Jettins \o/ » July 10th, 2013, 1:13 am

Here is a short recording of my piano practice. About a minute long for now.

I absolutely love it =) Much better to have it slow and accurate than faster than what you're used to and messing up the keys. My kinda music

Thanks guys. This song is harder to play for me than the other two.

That's really good Jettins! I love this music. My tip for you, in order for you to keep the tempo right, is always look ahead for the next note that's going to be played. This way when you're playing the notes, your eyes are already on the next notes and so your fingers get to it without losing the time. This is particularly useful when your hands need to move from one set of octaves to another.

Ah yeah. I think that's a good idea Fairyana. This song requires some ugly jumps. I haven't matured the song yet, and the notes, well this song will be more difficult to memorize. Just hitting trying to hit the keys is complex enough. I am not using the sustain petal on it yet, it will sound prettier for sure. Taking lessons on it.

I will try to re-wire my brain to be looking out for the next note. I think real skill will come when I can visualize 3 or 4 beats ahead of time.
