Hi guys! Lesson No. 88 (from the 3rd Chapter of our Course for Beginners) is now LIVE on PianoCareerAcademy.com! ;)

Today we will practice a romantic piece of an amazing lyrical beauty - the Pedal Prelude in E Minor, op. 38 by Samuel Maykapar! 8|

This Prelude will offer you lots of joy and 'musical delight' :D - also helping you to develop:
- your simultaneous and delayed pedaling techniques,
- the ability to execute swift, tension-free jumps and hand position changes,
- your hearing and harmonic awareness,
- your multitasking skills,
- your expressive power (the 'juicy' forte culmination is the most dramatic episode you have played so far!),
- your artistry and overall musical sensitivity (the intense emotional images will give you goose bumps!),
- ... and, as always - your phrasing, intonation, articulation, dynamics and voicing!
