Hannah's New Piano Pieces

I learned many new piano pieces over the spring months.

  • Waltz Of The Flowers (from the Nutcracker Ballet'') by Peter Tschikowsky  
  • Sonatina in G Major by Kuhlau
  • March /Marche Op. 65, No. 10 by Sergei Prokofiev
  • Dance by Dmitri Shostakovich
  • Anna Polka by E. Strauss

First I played Waltz Of The Flowers ( from the Nutcracker Ballet'') by Peter Tchaikovsky. I had to press the pedal while playing the piece. This was my favorite piece because its from the Nutcracker Ballet and I like to watch the ballet. In the ballet, Clara is dancing with the nutcracker who turned into a prince.

The second piece my mother recorded was Sonatina in G- major by Kuhlau. For this piece I had to practice it slow, count, and play with strong fingers. Next my mom recorded the song March /Marche Op. 65, No. 10 by Sergei Prokofiev. For the is piece I had to keep the beat because it is a march.  I had to practice it with the metronome and it took a long time for me to learn. This  piece sounds like solders marching in a parade.

Next I recorded the piece called Dance by Dmitri Shostakovitch. For this piece, I had to play loud and quiet and also not rush the melody. My piano teacher wanted me to count out loud, but I never counted because I do not like to.  I also had to play with all the right fingers.

The final piece  I recorded was Anna-Polka by E. Strauss. For this piece, I had to count, and I to play staccato with strong fingers.  Both Dance and Anna Polka are  happy pieces because it sounds like people are dancing at a party.

I hope you enjoy the songs that I recorded. I have been practicing all of these songs very hard.

Which piece was your favorite?

  4. Dear Sarah,

    Bravo bravo all the way from down under.

    You always amaze me just what a wonderful piano player you are.

    I really wish BB was still playing the piano. The piano is my second all time favourite.
    But in saying this BB did play a special piece of music on the piano for me on the weekend which made me smile.

    Enjoy your summer holidays Sarah.
    Take care.

    AA :)
