For everyone who has followed me throughout this series, I hope you found it rewarding and challenging. Hopefully this piece has helped you improve as a player in terms of technique and theory. When I began learning the piece, I was looking for something easier technique-wise than my previous Paganini series.
We are very close to the end, and — for everyone who has followed me with this series — I hope you've found it useful. For this lesson, much like with Part 7, we're going to play something that follows a previous section (in this case, from Part 4) but within a different relative key.
Unlike my previous series of lessons (where I already knew how to play the piece), I'll be learning the piece with you, section by section. I almost prefer this piece over the Paganini simply because it's a lot easier technique-wise and much easier to play at the correct tempo.
