This video is the fourth in the series: Colourful Keys Quick Clips. You can catch all the quick clips published so far by clicking here.
This rote piece from Piano Safari is always a hit with students and makes a fantastic first recital piece too.
My student absolutely FLYING through this, many students would just be working on one part a week, perhaps with the last two together. She remembered almost the entire piece at this lesson, but was just having a little trouble with part four so that’s what we’re working on in this clip.
This video is only her third lesson working on this (and sixth lesson ever) and you’ll see how quickly she latches on to the patterns and makes the changes needed. This is the power of pattern based rote teaching.
What are quick clips?
Colourful Keys Quick Clips are all about giving you a taste of what my lessons are actually like – in action.
I certainly don’t claim to be an expert, and I don’t have all the answers. I just know how much seeing real teaching with real students has helped me to grow and improve as a teacher.
Let me know what you think!
