Simon playing an adapted piece from Wagner’s Tannhäuser and getting annoyed as the teacher is trying to help him through singing. A nice example of Simon’s hypersensitivity.
Simon playing Clementi’s Sonatina:
Simon’s favorite piece for the moment – Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony:
This is currently Simon’s favourite piece – an adapted take on Saint-Saens’ Samson and Dalila:
Every evening Simon practices a little piano, whatever he has been working on with his piano teacher whom he attends twice a week.
Almost every night, Simon practices new pieces on the piano and his sister dances. Simon says she helps him with timekeeping.
Two days later the Menuet sounded better already:
From Girls Chorus (Prince Igor)
This one is such a joy to see, especially considering Simon has learned it within a week.
In the following video Simon plays a piece composed by a 9 year old blind prodigy (grown up by now).
Simon’s also been practicing Puccini and Beethoven. His wonderful teacher tries to make it clear to him how much logic and math there is hiding behind the temperamental piano chords and how exact the pianist must be. He loves chatting with her about music theory.
