Episode 45 – Happy Endings
In previous episodes, we have talked about introductions and what we need to get the exercise going, but what about our needs for the exercise coming to an end?
In this episode, we talk a bit about the structure of exercises so that pianists can identify when the end is coming, and we talk in depth about the things to look out for from the dancers and teachers, so you can finish playing when the exercise has finished.
There are various non-verbal cues that teachers use to signify if the exercise is about to come to an end, or if it’s repeating on the second side or in reverse. As with most of these episodes, there is laughter in abundance, where as you can imagine, things haven’t always gone right.
