Please start by downloading the new version of volume D01
that I updated today.
If you are new to the course, please read this
message to familiarize yourself with the conditions for participating in the lessons. You should also read the first message in lesson 1
, where you will find advice on how to make the most of your study time and on the methods of practising that I recommend.
First we will study some technical exercises from volume D01.
Page 54: G major scale and C major scale, numbers 4 and 5. Be sure to damp the notes properly in the descending passages. To damp the notes in the descending passages: lean the fingers of the left hand against the vibrating strings.
Finally, we'll look at six simple tunes, pages 22 to 25
Anonyme : C'est la cloche du vieux manoir
Anonyme : Le coucou
Anonyme : Alouette, gentille alouette
Anonyme : Vent frais, vent du matin
Anonyme : Lundi matin
Anonyme : Cadet Rousselle
I ask you first to work on all these exercises and tunes for a week and then to upload your recordings of:
Alouette, gentille alouette
I look forward to hearing you play these exercises and tunes.
I thank Geoff (GeoffB) who has helped in the translation of my lessons into English.
