The New Concept: Scores for All Stages of Learning

On the recent Music Education Expo in London, Piano Street presented a new concept for sheet music publication. Depending on your own level of experience and where you are in the learning process of a particular piece, you may need fingering, pedal markings, practice and performance tips, or perhaps the right opposite - a clean Urtext score.

Hi everyone.

I just finished Mariage d'amour by Richard Clayderman. This is a do over because my teacher said I was too heavy throughout and therefore "flat", "emotionless". I worked on a lighter touch in places and here are the results.

That was lovely.  Your phrasing throughout was perfect. Perhaps your touch could be lighter still -think butterfly thoughts!  Nevertheless your playing is very engaging because your captured the mood of the piece so well.

Nice dress!

Your teacher must be very open-minded to teach you Richard Clayderman.  I learnt all the Richard Clayderman pieces by myself and in secret.

very pretty playing. my one suggestion is when you know the piece this well and it is memorized do take the music rack off the piano (slide the whole thing off if possible, but at the very least take it down flat). it will not only affect the amount of sound you ear but you'll have a more direct connection to whats coming out of the instrument and will be able to adjust even more accordingly/be more responsive.

"Butterfly thoughts" I like that. The sound of it "feels" right. Thank you.

Thank you about the dress. I was worried those big shoulders would hide my face. LOL

I guess he is open minded. My last 2 pieces were Beethoven but before those I did Richard's "Ballade Pour Adeline".

I'll definitely lay the rack down flat next time. I was never told it would sound different. Thank you.

I don't play on that piano until recording time and then the church lets me use it. I can't wait to try that.
