I am currently studying for my grade 5 piano. So far I have learnt B1 Dream from Enfantines (this is the 2005-2006 syllabus).
At the moment I am practicing Gigue (A1) and I am finding it quite challenging.
We always go over little things in my piano lesson and he then says go away and practice one line or a few bars and get it perfect which is ok...and I go away and do it. I practice at home every night just one line to get it perfect and it is.
When I go to my piano lesson the follwing week and play it to him I keep making mistakes and I know I have done it at home. He then doesn't believe that I have done enough practice and then thinks I'm lying to him.
Are there any tips from anyone here please...I'm desperate to prove him wrong...somehow trying to contain what I have taught myself is proving mre difficult than I thought.
I have only been playing piano 1 + 1/2 years and I have passed grade 3 and now we are pushing onto grade 5...not the easiest thing to do.
