Pumpkin Boogie – This piece is in ternary form which is a fancy word for saying there’s an A part, B part, and then the A comes back. You are doing a great job of the RH rhythm!! Careful reading is important because this piece uses both B naturals AND B flats. Listen here.

G major scale hands together – do this one with both hands starting on G and going upwards. Same fingering as C major.

C major triads – Today was the best you’ve played these for me! Great fingering and nice note accuracy. Keep at it!


Viva La Vida – Great work! I would play both parts hands seperate along with the recording to “get it in your fingers”. Internalizing the LH groove is half the battle.


Chopin Waltz – you took a picture of this one. Everytime a finger number appears in a circle, it means you move to that new hand position.

G Major scale – This uses the same exact fingering as your C scale does, except it starts on G and has one black key – F#. It will go GABCDE F# G.


The Juggler – This piece has a LH melody, which should be louder than the RH accompaniment. Be sure to follow the written instructions for doing the

C Major Contrary motion scale – remember only one thumb under motion in one octave. 123 12345 going outwards.

C Major triads – play these broken (one note at a time) and solid (all 3 notes at once). CEG, then EGC, GCE, then CEG again. RH fingering will be 135, 125, 135, 135. LH fingering will go 531, 531, 521, 531.








To a Wild Rose – gorgeous! You can start polishing this and exaggerating the dynamics more. For example if there’s multiple diminuendos in a row, you may have to start each phrase a little louder than the previous one so you actually have room to get quieter. I think your tempo is perfectly fine.
