Kayser 36 studies, No. 14: Andante, beginning (Svecenski/G.Schirmer)

It is a lesson on Kayser no.14: Andante.

You read the music very well, and intonation is good, too.

In order to make things better, let’s think of four things.

  1. Trills has to be better controlled. The number of your trills are slightly different every time based on how comfortable your hand is at the moment. The number of tills should be the same consistently, especially in this context. Why not trying with less trills, in order to get the feel of controlling them? After that, you can increase the number of trills. You can see below the notated examples of steps you can take, as well as the recording.
  2. Music says Andante, which means walking tempo, so you do not need to play too fast. Every person has his own idea of walking tempo, however, I rather you to learn good technique, which requires using your good 🙂 brain while you are playing. I highly recommend you to take the tempo of a little slow side, and try to produce good sound with character.
  3. A quarter note with staccatoshould not be too short. It has a staccato, but remember it is till a quarter note, not an eighth note. It should not sound too short, like eighth note with staccato. You can use more bow by moving the bow fast in order to add staccato character.
  4. Also, m.4 and so on, the rythm of the combination of dotted eighth note and 16th note should be very precise. “The ration of the length of those notes is…?” “3 to 1 !” “That is right ! We talk about it often enough.”
