Maurice Ravel – Prélude

Well guys, I know there’s been some delays and I’m very sorry for that.

T’was working a lot on my gaming forum/blog (will reveal at the end of this month) and that made me very tired. Hence, I wasn’t able to upload a new video for like a month. (Make that 5 weeks.)

I’m very sorry for this. Some of you may have thought that I’m dead, but I’m not. School has been very busy as well and just trying to get time in to relax doesn’t leave time for taking 10-30 takes to get a nice recording of a song.

Anywho, been practicing this song for a while now. This song was originally used for sight-reading tests of Grade 8 Piano students. I didn’t do it as a sigh-reading thing… I just played it like I normally would.

The middle part of the song (where the hands go over one-another) is the hardest. The way to learn it? Practice, practice and practice.

If you practice for more than 2 hours, then you’re doing something wrong. After 2 hours, your mental capicity and concentration gets very low; which translates into not much progress any more. (Might even hinder progress at times.)

 

Enough rambling talking…
I’m sure you’re here to see the next song I uploaded. It’s a short classical piece and-

You know what?
‘Ere ya go:

  1. I’m doing something wrong? D: … I once spent the whole day playing piano, but I never saw it as “practice” I just saw it as playing… Something to do for fun.

    Issat a bad thing? 🙂

    • That is a very good thing!

      This should happen every now and then. Means that you like playing and enjoy it.

      Keep at it the way you are and find someone to teach ya if you don’t already have ^_^
