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!

Here is my first attempt at playing the Haydn first movement. I've mostly focused on memorizing the piece so far, so there remains a lot of work with technical challenges and musical challenges! As you also can see in the video, there were some mistakes, and there are quite a few trouble spots I need to work out. Also need to get going with learning the other two movements!
