A Guide to the Trinity College Piano Syllabus


Mozart - Allegretto (from The London Sketchbook, K. 15hh)

Mozart was 8 years old on a trip to London when he wrote this charming little Allegretto in F major in minuet-style, with a trio section in the minor. The video demonstrates how to use quarantine practice for difficult spots, and how to apply bar-by-bar chaining for secure learning. Various possibilities for phrasing and expression are explored, with some alternative fingering suggestions.
