MusicOnline UK Teaching Notes - ABRSM Piano 2019/20 Grade 1 - B2

The Echo

Theodor Oesten

ABRSM Grade 1 Piano 2019 - 2020.




Teaching Notes:


As the title suggests, a good dynamic contrast is needed to gain a high mark in the exam. Also notice that most of the "pianissimo" bars have a rest in the LH. Make sure you release the chord from the previous bar in each case, so that no notes are hanging over the bar line.


The exception to the above is the last two bars where the LH joins in for the final echo. Care must be taken to control the tone here so that the "pianissimo" is maintained.

Finally, be careful of the duplets in bars 15 & 17. By this point you will have been so used to playing the triplets from the beginning of this piece that it might be tempting to play a triplet quaver at the end of these bars. Make sure this final quaver is exactly HALF a beat, NOT A THIRD of a beat.
