How to use
You can play this little music piece as it is or you can embellish it, play it according to different music styles and genres, improvise and add your own timbral changes to it.
This little piece is ideal to encourage the player to be ambitious with their creativity and musicality skills. This is ideal to practice the skill of performance. Since the technical level is quite low, you can learn the piece fairly quickly and immediately think how to make your delivery of the piece more convincing and powerful. How to convey emotion through the music using articulation, dynamics, timbral changes, and other effects that will enhance the performance. There is also an option to play it as a duet, so grab a friend and play it together. The same principles apply.
What is so special with this piece is that beyond playing the correct notes, there is nothing else that can be played wrongly. The performer can choose a style, or invent their own personal style and as long as their intentions are clear, and the performance is meaningful it is “correct”.
So trying to find what is “right and wrong” is not benefitial for learning this piece. Actually, this is exactly what this piece wants to distract us from. Trying to find convential truths instead of learning how to trust our own instincts.
With this piece I am hoping to inspire and motivate the performer to try new things and make music in their own special way. Don’t be surprised if you hear another person performing the same piece differently.
However, it is important to remember that this piece is not to be learnt in isolation (as any other piece anyway). There are hardly any technical skills to be learnt through this. Apart of course from the skills of music interpretation and performance which are extremely valuable in the process of developing a musical person.
Any advanced or extended techniques in any version of the piece is a suggestion and to be played according to the capabilities of each performer. For example, a beginner could play the tremolo as two minims, later on as four crotchets (quarter notes) and gradually (if the performer revists this piece the following year) they may be able to play the tremolo as eighth notes, or even faster.
When purchasing this piece, you will get one folder that contains multiple versions of the same piece written for different instrument ranges. Two scores for monophonic instruments (two different levels), for polyphonic instruments such as piano, and one score for a duo between two monophonic instruments. If you can’t find something suitable for your instrument let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will arrange it for you promptly!
As always, have fun making music!!!
