Question for my Readers

I have a question for my readers. Please comment and let me know what book you or song you want me to discuss in the blog. It could be a general idea, such as "what is book 6 about?" Or it could be a specific problem with a song, such as "how do I teach Minuet 2?" Or, "what are the teaching points of Becker's Gavotte?" Please let me know what interests you right now. Perhaps I can turn my answers into quick practice tips.


  1. What is the best way to memorise the notes for a piece? Say.. Lightly Row.. ? Thanks.

  2. I just stumbled across your blog today, and haven't read many of your articles yet, but I've already come across several ideas that I plan to use with my students.

    I would love to hear some teaching tips for Book 5, particularly the Vivaldi G minor Concerto. My most advanced student will be beginning that one soon, and any ideas you have would be greatly appreciated. The student is working on the Book 5 #1 now, learned #2 last year along with the rest of the Vivaldi A minor, and learned the Bach Double for the end-of-the-year recital. I was pretty much self-taught after Book 2, so I am always looking to learn from those with more experience! Thanks!

  3. Hi, Anonymous! Let me know if there are any specific questions you have. I started to answer you, and then I thought this would be a great blog post for today. So stay tuned about my general ideas concerning book 5. Teachers: how about chiming in on this subject as well. We can all share our ideas.
