I NEVER thought I'd practice this on camera. In fact, I had thought I had decided that the same day I decided to practice No. 19 on camera. I mean, look at it:
Does that look even remotely interesting to you? My vision practically blurred when I first looked at this page.
But then I realized: Hey, I'm about being real on this channel. Should I really avoid practicing things like this because I don't find it interesting? No. I need to show that part to you guys too. I also have to practice things that I don't want to because it helps me learn more. It's like doing homework for a subject at school that you might not really like. You still gotta do it, though, because it's good for your education. You learn other things better because you learned things you may not have liked studying.
So I reluctantly started filming. But as you can see from the progression throughout the video, I started seeing things I didn't see before, discovering that there are TWO melodies happening at the same time, realizing I'm playing two different parts simultaneously... So this wasn't as boring as I thought it was!
Always give boring music a chance. It just might surprise you. ;)
Psst. Here's a link to the pdf of the Andersen etudes, Op. 30:
