Some more things here – try to free up thumb as much as possible. Thumb is like the key of the hand that can open up to flexibility the whole hand. Similar principles work on both right and left hand.
Dedicated to my online students.
The sixth piece in the one year piano course.
The piece is especially written for playing before Beethoven’s “Für Elise”. It needs similar technical skills as “Für Elise” but is an easier version.
It would not be good and respectful in my opinion to use such great music as “Für Elise” for practicing purely piano technique and using it as an exercise. So this piece gives an oppurtinity to master the technical skills and then pay more attention to music in playing “Für Elise”.
