In today’s episode of PianoTV, we’re going to look at Impressionist music.
We’ll talk about the composers who played a role in this sound movement (namely Debussy), what the impressionist style sounds like, and characteristics of the music.
Today we’ll be discussing the musical genre of the Polonaise, which is a Polish dance that appears in a fairly diverse range of piano music. Guys from earlier time periods, like Bach and Beethoven (both German), made use of the Polonaise, but the most famous Polonaises were composed by Frederic Chopin (Polish by birth).
This is the second part of a two-part video on piano goals I sort of accidentally created (Here’s part 1 if you missed it). I always feel a strong urge to get organized toward the beginning of the school year, and have been spending my entire week on that project. I’ll probably spend all of next week on the same.
This video was born from a desperate need to get organized. I’ve been spending my week on that – getting things organized for both myself and my students, and then I thought – I can’t be the only one with this problem. The only one who feels like without a solid plan, I’m floating aimlessly in outer space. I decided, it’s time to make some piano goals.
