Introduction to the classic piece "Spring Dance" by Edvard Grieg including explanation of what will be covered in the process of learning to play this tune with Hugh Sung's unique teaching method.
- Now we're gonna into some classical folk music.…We're gonna take a look at playing notes harmonically.…If you recall, the difference between melody and harmony…the melody is usually played one note at a time.…Harmony can either be played one note at a time,…or you can actually play multiple notes together.…We're gonna introduce playing two notes at the same time…with one hand, okay?…It's gonna be a lot of jumping around this piece.…The notes aren't necessarily hard,…but the counting can be a little tricky.…
It's a simple dance in one sense,…and yet this gives you an opportunity, if you want,…to play as fast you like, but you have to be careful.…Take your time to really learn it well…before you really speed it up.…And we're gonna talk about ways…to have some fun with that…as your progress through this piece.…
