Hi everyone,
Here is my new tutorial on Chopin's 6th Prelude.
It is usually the first or the second Prelude from Chopin that I give to a student.
Here I explain how to approach the piece with separate and both hands.
I talk about phrasing and pedaling. There is a link in the description for the free PDF version of the sheet music with my fingerings.
Enjoy and good luck!

Thank you! I enjoyed all of your videos. Do you teach piano in real-life too (for beginners)? 😉

Really nice tutorial!
Maybe the cam could be a bit more still but I do like your way of teaching, very good. Subscribed!

I am planning to make videos on some Sonatas of Beethoven soon. Thanks for the suggestion!

Great tutorial! At what level would the student be when you assign this? Being adept at articulation would be a requirement, I would think.

I like that you are teaching the student to use skills (such as articulation and dynamics) as a means to expressing interpretation. Sometimes, in the hustle and bustle of learning things like articulation, dynamics, and pedalling, beginner and intermediate students lose sight of the fact that skills are a means to an end. .

Thank you for the comment!
With adult students, this prelude would be one of the first choices, when they want to play music from Chopin. Depending on the progress, I believe it could be played after 1 to 3 years of experience with piano playing. As in most cases, adult students improve faster in first years.
With kids, I believe there are other pieces to start with, from Chopin.
I think it is an excellent piece to learn about all the technical aspects you mentioned above!

Great video! I am a big fan of Chopin. I learnt his Nocturne n. 2 op. 9.
It took me four months and I am still working to improve it. What should be the following pieces I could try in your opinion?

Thank you!
It is difficult to say as I've never heard you play. Considering you could play the Nocturne Op.9 Nr.2 in 4 months, there are perhaps different options to try.
For example;
Mazurka Op.17 No.4
Waltz Op.34 No.2
Nocturne Op.72 No.1

Good luck!
