Here I am already in my 6th week of work on this piece. It starts to take shape little by little. The deciphering until the end is finished, remains to continue to train. 6 weeks ago, I never thought I could get there. I am really motivated!
The right hand was relatively easy to manage, but now the hardest part is to synchronise the 2 hands.
I feel that I will have to work for hours, weeks and months on this piece, It’s far to be done.
After a big week of work, the left hand is more or less managed and I start to work the right hand.
After the corrections made by my piano teacher on my week work, I have to continue to practice the left hand but slowly, with more precision and a better hand position. My position was completely wrong and it was the cause of my pain. Now I’m going better, I don’t feel the pain anymore and my game is is better.
Everyday I play more and more piano. Now I can play by ear but I really miss some technique to play how I want. So I’ve searched for piano lessons and I found Elie Drai who is teaching me via Skype.
The 2 first lessons, he asked me to learn a French song from Pascal Obispo: Lucie and to practice some exercices to correct my mistakes. But now I have to learn a Chopin’s Nocturne. It’s a real challenge for me because it’s far upper my level but my teacher seems to be confident.
So, for now, I just have to practice the left hand. It’s only some arpeggios but probably made for giant’s hands 😉
It’s a good exercice to try my new piano that I just receive for my birthday. It’s the Kawai K2ATX, an acoustic right piano with silence and recording system. The touch it’s a little harder than my previous CVP piano but the sound is nice and it looks great in our living room.
