Introduction to the damper pedal


As you can see from the thumbnail, I clearly enjoy the damper pedal.  The damper pedal is one of three foot pedals seen on a piano – the one on the right.  For those of you with electronic keyboards, it’s usually the only pedal that comes with it, as the other two pedals are used infrequently.  It’s lots of fun and adds “blurriness” to pieces, evoking more moods and adding more expressive possibilities.

The pieces this week are:

Technique: In Steps Together

Technique: G Scale

Piece: Nostalgia

Enjoy! 🙂
