Learn to play Arietta by Clementi, as featured in the ABRSM 2015/16 syllabus.
All beginner pianists try to play too much, too fast, too soon and it really slows down their progress and makes learning the piano very frustrating. The best way to learn a piece is taking very small parts at a time, played slowly with an example sound to aim for. This slow approach is the fastest and most rewarding way to learn a piece and is exactly what Clementi's Arietta from Yohondo gives you.
Sit at your piano, put your iPad in front of you and we’ll take you through learning Arietta step by step. With incremental exercises featuring professional sound recordings, animated notation and videos on technique. In each one listen and then play it yourself; or listen again and play along.
When you can play it successfully press Perform to record yourself, then listen back and rate how well you did. Was it good enough to get 3 stars?
Quotes from students and teachers:
'Learning the grade 3 piece Blue Sky Blues through Yohondo was an absolute revelation. It seemed way out of reach but with Yohondo the speed increase and confidence boost made it like learning on steroids. Your accuracy improves too because you learn to play it correctly right from the start.'
My son found Yohondo incredibly useful, particularly the way the music was segmented into small pieces that he could both hear and see, so that he could really focus on the difficult bits. The proof was in the exam result as he got distinction for all his pieces.
