Got 100% on Canon in C today.
Congratulations treefrog. Do you think I could handle that canon in C? I kinda gave up on level 4 because I didn't find it that interesting anymore, and you have to play way too fast. In the meantime I've learned a lot of other songs from the library...I think I'll give it a try
If I can do it, you can.
If you persevere and you enjoy learning this piece as much as I have, I’m sure that you will be able to do it.
Yes, it does seem fast at first, especially the sections with arpeggios in the left hand, but you soon realise that this is the speed that it needs to be played and anything slower just wouldn’t sound particularly good. The arpeggios become second nature after a while and although it’s quite a long piece, there is a similar pattern to each section. The tricky bit is being able to transition seamlessly between those sections.
Each of the first 19 exercises in this level took me 1-2 days to master and putting all of those sections together for the whole piece has taken a few weeks. So all in all it’s taken quite a while to master but it’s been worth it.
After getting 100% I might have gone on to the next exercise if it wasn’t for the fact that I really enjoy playing this piece and every day I can play it a little smoother so now I’m just going to carry on adding expression to it for a while before I move on.
I highly recommend that you give it a try. Of all of the pieces I’ve learnt on my PM journey this was the hardest but it is by far my biggest achievement.
