Today we’re going to take a look at the first piece from Tchaikovsky’s Children’s Album, op. 39 collection. It’s called “Morning prayer” and it’s written like a liturgical chorale, which we’ll discuss in a minute.
Today’s video covers the RCM’s grade 3 piano technique requirements (updated for the 2015 syllabus). This includes scales and triads, solid and broken. I’ll be playing with the metronome in this video at the MINIMUM required speeds (feel free to go a little faster), and will label each technique on the screen as I play them.
In this video/blog post, we’re going to take a look at some of my favorite grade 3 piano pieces. The video shows some quick clips of what the pieces sound like, and all the information is listed below.
