Reading & Technique
DO NOT LEARN NOTES BY LOOKING AT THE FINGER NUMBERS. THIS IS A BIG NO NO.
Czerny Op. 823
SIGHT-SING: the RH and the LH. Find the pitch with your voice and sing the solfege syllables.
RH & LH alone:
ARTICULATION: staccato, slurs, accents, fermatas, etc…
COMPOSE: create your own melody, using any notes you wish in the RH.
TWO RULES: use the same rhythm and the same articulation (expression)
