How-to-play series

Each of the following series details how to perform and practice a particular piece of music. These are at the moment mostly by rote and you will have to find your own copy of the music. (page under construction)

Villa-Lobos – Etude 1 – a classic advanced level study that can be played as a prelude to Heitor Villa-Lobos’s “Cinque Preludes” (five preludes) or as a stand-alone piece. I break it down into its parts – right hand pattern (with several possible fingerings) and the chord series in the left hand, with a few breaks.
