In this course you will learn how to memorize Piano pieces for your recitals/auditions/exams, so that you don't just rely on muscle memory, that can often fail in high-pressure situations, such as a Piano performance.
If you have felt frustration, and that you'll never be able to memorize a piece, and be able to play it instantly from memory whenever you want, then this course is for you.
Module 1: At the Piano:
This module will get you to start memorizing a piece, as soon as you begin to learn it, and avoid common mistakes that Pianists make, that slow the progress of learning, and memorizing.
Module 2: Away from the Piano:
One of my favourite parts! This is where we will go deep into how you apply theory, and analyze the music score, to really embed the music in your mind, and see how all the sections of the music connect, as well as compositional devices.
Module 3: The musical map in your mind:
Finally, this is where you will realize how well you really know the piece from beginning to end, so that you begin engaging all the senses of touch, sound, and vision. As well, you can imagine the sound you want to create, based on the composer´s dynamics, and articulations. and fill in any blank spots you may have, to prepare your pieces confidently for performance, so that you're not relying on having the score, and page turners.
You´ll get lifetime access when you enroll, and there will be a short survey where you can let me know what you expect to learn inside, and give any suggestions for music you´d like me to cover in the examples part of the course.
What level of playing experience do I need to take this course?
I recommend that you have at least an intermediate level of Piano ability, and that you have a good foundation of knowledge in theory, so that can recognize harmonies, broken chords, scales etc. in your repertoire.
How long are the videos online?
All the time. You can study at your own pace, and take your time to improve your habits. I´ll be available in the course comments section to answer any questions you may have about a particular area of the course.
