For today’s episode of PianoTV, we’re going to try a new Q&A format. Previously we did a big monthly Q&A where I answer four of your questions, but I’d like to try breaking that big video into shorter weekly ones.
In today’s video, I want to take a closer look at the music of Fantasia. Fantasia is a very popular animated Disney film from 1940, and almost the entire score is famous Classical music.
In today’s episode, I want to do a tutorial for The Sick Doll by Tchaikovsky. This is a great piece that I especially love teaching grade 2-level kids, since it’s so sad and dramatic and they really seem to connect to the story and emotion of it easily.
Today we’re going to take a look at the music of Tchaikovsky in a wide range of genres. This should give you a decent sense of his musical style, and serve as a launching point for exploring his music further.
In today’s video, I want to discuss some mind-frame stuff – the mind-frame of assuming you’ll become a piano master. I’ve been doing a lot of reading lately on mental attitudes and adjustments, and wanted to explore some of those concepts as they relate to the piano.
