I really enjoy teaching high school students, especially the ones who have been with me for a long time. Those students who have a good foundation, in their reading, technic, and theory, are usually able to keep up and progress throughout their high school years, in spite of the ever-demanding homework loads and big efforts needed to get into college!
The student in this video loves to play the piano, loves music, in general. She told me yesterday that she began practicing this Bach invention over the weekend, practicing a few hours when she had time. She doesn't always practice regularly at this point, but when she practices, she accomplishes a lot, due to all the work she has put into playing the piano over the years. Now, she has the skills to learn on her own, and often, we practice together at lessons, if she has not had the time to practice much at home. I always enjoy our lessons! Here are two videos, one of the beginning stages of her Bach Invention in A minor, and one of the Mozart, K. 545 Rondo. Download Bach invention Download Mozart k.545
