Continuing in our studies from John Thompson’s Modern Course For The Piano Second Grade Book, today’s lesson will cover Scherzino on page 51. In today’s lesson we will discuss the following topics:
Song form from the early Romantic period
Fast tempo, lots of notes
2/2 time signature, same as cut time
Key of G flat major
Cross-unders with the thumb
Students will need to purchase their own copy of this book so they can follow along with these lessons.
