Spring Dance, D2 Section, Measures 23-26 are broken down and walked through. Hugh first teaches the right hand alone, then the left hand alone, followed by how to combine both hands. Notation is overlaid to help you follow along with the lines being taught.
- Okay, let's find the next notes on the right hand.…I think you're gonna be surprised at…how familiar this sounds.…Right hand, our G clef, remember the second line,…this is the note right above that,…so that would make it an A, okay.…(playing piano)…Hey, this sounds familiar.…Hand over.…Hmm.…Now replace this E with a one.…Hand over.…
Yeah, so it's the same pattern that we've just played,…just moved down an octave.…And remember, an octave is gonna be a note…that is eight notes away, they share the same note names,…just eight notes apart.…Let's go on to our left hand.…Rhythmically the left hand is very similar…to what we just played in the previous section,…slight difference in notes.…Okay, so again, there's a rest to start,…rest, and then the left hand starts with a D,…a fall down ball game, together, okay.…
One rest, I'm on the second beat,…and this is a C.…Rest, D, and then this should be familiar,…two, three.…So let me play this again in rhythm.…One, ready, and.…One two three, one two three,…rest two three, one two three.…
