Hints on Valse:
There are a lot of slurs in this piece, which can be tough for new players. The actual playing of the slurs isn’t difficult, but new players tend to speed up during slurs, losing the tempo. Go to the “Technique” and “Excercises” sections of this site for more videos on slurs. There are also a lot of rests in this piece, which can be problematic for those who are not used to playing them. Treat these rests as if you are playing notes. Put your fingers on the notes that are being muted as if you are going to play them again, but don’t pluck the strings afterwards. Try doing this slowly at first to really develop the control to do this, or don’t play the piece with rests at first and add them on little by little.
