In today’s part 2 video of a brief history of opera, we’re going to talk about Romantic and Modern opera styles, and the influential composers and works in this period.
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.
I was asked to do a video talking about my experience of becoming a piano teacher, and if I had any insight to share for those of you who are interested in piano teaching.
In this video, I’ll share my story and my journey, as well as some tips and insight into the job as a whole. I’m just one piano teacher – my insights aren’t the be-all-end-all – but hopefully you’ll enjoy this personal video and get something out of it.
