This week, we will talk about the different ways composers were trained during the 18th century and how they could achieve such high productivity through schemas and patterns
Look at a different piece by the same composer you are studying and try to compare the music to the new piece you are practicing now.
If you are ready, post a short clip of the patterns you found in your music! One of the ways we grow is through feedback and self-reflection.
Pick a piece from the suggested repertoire according to your level or share any piece written during the 18th century that you have been working on!
If you want to describe your process, feel free to use the following template.
- Piece(s) you have been working on:

I did not get much practice this past week as I was under the weather and had little energy. I went ahead and made a video for where I’m at now. The last page is the least secure. I was disappointed that when my tuner came out last week he did not have “grease” with him to fix the squeaking sustain pedal so I am still wincing through every pedal change and it’s distracting as I’m trying to use as little pedal as possible to minimize the squeaks. It is much louder in person than it comes across in the video.
During week 2 we talked about schemas, patterns and about the rule of the octave. And since Tonebase seems to be up to date with anything people seem interested in and I had just mentioned Dr. Derek Remes- coincidence or not....- you have this: check it out if you have missed it.
