Bastien Piano Basics Level 1, No. 3: Sleepy John

Focus Points:
  • Make sure you are in C position with both hands: right hand thumb on C and left hand pinky on C.
  • This is the first time in the book that the left hand starts
  • At the end of the piece, in the last two measures, the right and left hand alternate. Make sure that you do not skip the double C in the right hand.
  • Try playing every note in the song with "pepperoni pizza" like in the finger concerto.
  • Play the p (piano) really soft and the f (forte) really strong to make a dramatic difference.
