The first is a short waltz in F major in 3/4 time. It involves a fair amount of jumping around the piano keyboard and careful use of your piano’s sustain pedal. The second is quite a straightforward piece in G — straightforward in terms of notes at least! The challenge here is to maintain the dynamic balance between the left hand (“sempre piano” — i.e, soft throughout) and the mf (mezzo forte, medium loud) right hand.
The third piece, a blues in C, again helps you work on control of dynamic contrast and also requires you to use a swing feel — an important concept when reading written music in a jazz or blues style. As always, the scores from this piano lesson are in the accompanying PDF – download link below.
