All Cooped Up was written just after Diane Hidy found herself just like the rest of the world — All Cooped Up! She wanted to write something specifically to help teachers who suddenly found themselves having to teach online. The pieces are designed for easy back-and-forth alternating even with the delays that happen with online instruction. They easily lend themselves to the kinds of instruction necessary in online teaching. "You play the left hand, I'll play the right!" Or, "Let's play this piece with you playing every other measure." The layout is clean, with measure numbers and no key signatures. (The accidentals are written in the music, just like they are in her best-selling Attention Grabber pieces.)

The slow movement of Clementi’s well-known Sonatina in G provides a pastoral contrast to its spirited outer movements. Fred addresses the common problem of intentional sixteenth-note rhythm vs. oft-heard triplets, using ‘internally-felt’ subdivisions as a way to heighten awareness of rhythm and to “energize” it--an invaluable technique for multiple repertoire styles and difficulty levels.

This famous piece has delighted musicians for nearly 300 years, following its inclusion in the 1725 Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach. Long thought to have been composed by J.S. Bach, the establishment of Petzold’s authorship only occurred in the 1970’s. Minuet in G opens with a prototypical example of the basic three-dimensional form on five notes. This lesson opens with a performance on the harpsichord and continues with discussion about differences between playing on the piano vs. the harpsichord. Fred continues with the process of developing integrated, three-dimensional motion in a variety of figures, with and without black keys, including three-and four-note slurs and non legato passages in both hands, emphasizing the elegant minuet character throughout.

Diane Hidy wrote the following about Just for Now: “I wanted to write something for young pianists to help them express what they’re going through. It’s designed for people who are old enough to understand what’s going on, but not advanced enough to play Chopin Nocturnes or Rachmaninoff Preludes to help them through.

“I called the piece Just For Now to remind us all that, though we can’t do the things we love right now, we will do them again. We will be with our loved ones. We will take walks on the beach."

Playing with a fixed wrist, a twisted hand, excessive force (banging!) and too much tension in general -- these issues are often seen in pieces like this appealing etude. By combining good alignment, a quiet hand, a light thumb, and utilizing the right muscles at the right time, we can cultivate an easy leggiero touch with a gentle vibrato motion. Fred suggests different shaping options and includes those in his score markings, for an injury-preventive approach and effortless performance.

With The Bear, Rebikov has provided us with an imaginative, early-20th century piece that uses the whole-tone scale throughout. The Bear is a favorite among many late-elementary piano students for its depiction of a bear lumbering in the bass register. It presents a chance to work on coordination of right-hand double-thirds vs. a jumpy bass in the left hand while maintaining an easy, ‘whole-body’ approach.

Metric inflection, harmonic response, and different articulation within the same hand are some of challenges present in this second piece from the Album for the Young. Fred demonstrates potential solutions to the challenges by offering different fingering options, singing, three-dimensional shaping, feeling vibrant rhythms internally, and other ideas to spark musical imagination.

Four Classical works are featured in this set of early intermediate repertoire, including three spirited pieces and the pastoral slow movement of a Clementi sonatina. Three-dimensional concepts continue to advance versus earlier repertoire, including faster scalar passages, the vibrato technique for repeated notes and waltz accompaniment, cultivating a light thumb, leggiero touch, and fingering for smaller hands. Musical elements include energized and differentiated rhythm; waltz and minuet styles; harmonic analysis; articulation and shaping; and an effective practice strategy for learning any piece at any level.

The slow movement of Clementi’s well-known Sonatina in G provides a pastoral contrast to its spirited outer movements. Fred addresses the common problem of intentional sixteenth-note rhythm vs. oft-heard triplets, using ‘internally-felt’ subdivisions as a way to heighten awareness of rhythm and to “energize” it--an invaluable technique for multiple repertoire styles and difficulty levels.

Dancing along in ⅜, Czerny’s joyful little etude is brimming with opportunities for three-dimensional playing. This technical masterclass includes using the vibrato technique for a left-hand waltz accompaniment; encouraging organic movement during quick, scalar passages; shifting to new hand positions with the ease of a ballet dancer; and an effective practice method that can be applied by any pianist in any piece.

Playing with a fixed wrist, a twisted hand, excessive force (banging!) and too much tension in general -- these issues are often seen in pieces like this appealing etude. By combining good alignment, a quiet hand, a light thumb, and utilizing the right muscles at the right time, we can cultivate an easy leggiero touch with a gentle vibrato motion. Fred suggests different shaping options and includes those in his score markings, for an injury-preventive approach and effortless performance.

Written when Mozart was just six years old, this short piece is a great introduction to minuet style. This video delves into the specific traits of a minuet, including tempo, character, and more deliberate movement in this dance versus a waltz. Fred’s marked score provides harmonic analysis, recommended articulation and shaping, and fingering that facilitates small hands, such as those that the young Wolfgang must have had at the time.

Bach, the establishment of Petzold’s authorship only occurred in the 1970’s. Minuet in G opens with a prototypical example of the basic three-dimensional form on five notes. This lesson opens with a performance on the harpsichord and continues with discussion about differences between playing on the piano vs. the harpsichord. Fred continues with the process of developing integrated, three-dimensional motion in a variety of figures, with and without black keys, including three-and four-note slurs and non legato passages in both hands, emphasizing the elegant minuet character throughout.

Repeated notes are in the style of flamenco guitar, and Fred teaches an easy way to approach them at the piano for a similar rhapsodic effect. The accompanying annotated score suggests exactly where some of these changes can be inserted for an intriguing interpretation.
